Snapshot of the Homeland generation today

This is a retelling of a story from the late 1800s that was written by Henry James, about a girl whose parents are divorced. They share custody, but are both irresponsible, and eventually the girl finds a safer haven in the guardians who are entrusted with her care. The movie changes the story a little bit, and is also set in contemporary times. As such, it presents an anomalous portrait of how children are raised today. The parents are acting like parents from the 1970s, not those of the 2010s. It's still a very touching film, and I thought it brought out some Homelander traits in the girl character, particularly her compassion for others.

Good story - and a good point from you either. The parents in the book were worse than those in "Kramer vs. Kramer".
