    There is no sound in this link, but just watching the interactions between everyone says volumes, imagine how different it would be if someone was "bad association or df'ed .

    I really do love that film. Especially how the late Jason Robards's grandpa character gets a second chance with his grandson, Cool.

    I love that movie. Saw it the other night for the hundredth time. Very insightful, well-observed, and full of great one-liners. And you're right how JWism can often put extra strains on and complicate family relationships.
