"2010's most heartfelt movie" - Entertainment Weekly
In bringing Touching Home to the screen, the Miller Brothers have accomplished the impossible. Beginning with no experience or contacts, only a promise to their deceased father that they would tell his story, they wrote a screenplay and " ambushed" Ed Harris at the San Francisco International Film Festival. Their enthusiasm and drive attracted a cast and crew that together have garnered 11 Academy Awards and 28 nominations. It's an inspirational story they tell in their #1 bestselling memoir Either You're In or You're in the Way now available in paperback from HarperCollins.
Ed Harris stars in this emotionally charged drama of love and redemption, based on a true story and a resonant debut for Bay Area writer-directors Logan and Noah Miller. The Millers co-star as Lane and Clint Winston, twin brothers from a working class background who pursue professional baseball careers while trying to save their homeless, alcoholic father Charlie (an extraordinary performance by Harris). Touching Home is a coming-of-age drama, an account of overcoming enormous odds and a tale about family and the bonds that matter. Filmed largely on Marin County locations, it features a terrific supporting cast, including Robert Forster, Brad Dourif, Lee Meriwether, Evan Jones, Brandon Hanson and Ishiah Benben. Camera: Ricardo Jacques Gale. Editor: Robert Dalva. Music: Martin Davich. Executive Producers: Brian Vail, Gordon Radley. Producer: Jeromy Zajonc. Writers/Producers/Directors: Logan Miller, Noah Miller. (US 2010) 111 min. Rated PG13.
