Allow us to introduce you to ‘Dad’, the Amblin movie that very few seem to know exists. Despite starring Hollywood legend Jack Lemmon, ‘Cheers’ star Ted Danson and a young Ethan Hawke hot on the heels of ‘Dead Poets Society’, this multi-generational comedy-drama is a film that has very little cultural footprint (and a sparse IMDB trivia page). We take a look at how it came to be and offer our thoughts as to why this is one film in the Amblin canon that seems to have drifted into relative obscurity. TRIGGER WARNING: The film and our conversation touch on emotionally loaded themes such as bereavement, terminal illness, dementia and parental relationships that some listeners may find sensitive. As mentioned in the episode, check out the delightful video of the 'Dead Poets Society' cast taking New York City while auditioning for 'Dad': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1eOYkQpifk Follow the podcast on Twitter (@RamblinAmblin) and be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode!
