Common Chord 2013

     Kyle Foster is struggling with the responsibility of being a father to his young daughter Teigan.  Her mother has recently died and her grandfather would like to have sole custody of Teigan.  Bill, her grandfather is willing to battle in court with Kyle over who is the best person to be in Teigan’s life.  The social worker on the case is trying to help Kyle fully accept his role as a father.  She believes Bill is too elderly and he has too many health conditions to be the sole guardian for Teigan.  Kyle and Bill are carrying a lot of resentment towards each other because of past events.  Bill wishes his wife had not passed away because she could help him get through all of these problems.
     The scenery in Alberta is beautiful.  Parents and grandparents both don’t always have the right answers when it comes to parenting children.  It’s an everyday challenge to do the right thing.  When you are struggling in your own life, the right decisions don’t come easily.  There are times when everyone resents the social worker. They need to try to remember that she is a neutral party and able to make the best recommendations without emotional ties to the family.  3 ½* (I liked this movie)
