If you want to see big-budget Hollywood movies, this isn&#39;t it. If you want to see A-List actors and actresses, this isn&#39;t it. If you want to see amazing stunts, massive explosions, gang or mob action-drama, this as well isn&#39;t it.<br/><br/>If you want a (I hate to use the cliché term) wholesome movie that everyone can watch in the family, a movie that is extremely emotional and raw (by this I mean not sugar-coated with fake emotions and feelings), a movie that you actually begin to feel what young Alex has gone through so far in his young life.<br/><br/>Based on a true story, &quot;Finding A Family&quot; is such an amazing, down-to- earth show, and doesn&#39;t have any offencive term or swearwords in it; like I said, great for the whole family. If you have movie night (one evening in a week) like my family does, this is a show to watch then, or anytime for that matter.<br/><br/>I gave it 10/10 for so many reasons, that if I were to list them all, I would run out space; but I have listed a few reasons above. I am taking a guess that either the people that gave this &quot;made for TV movie&quot; were expecting a big Hollywood budget show, or wanting a ton of action, truly would find this show to be something entirely different.<br/><br/>Have a great Spring everyone!

Some heart-wrenching scenes toward the beginning of this Hallmark movie. Also no big names co-starring in this, so this one has to stand on its own merits, and it does a pretty good job! Alex&#39;s mom (Kim Delaney, who is also the producer...) develops psychological disorders, and bounces in and out of treatment facilities. Alex (Jared Abrahamson) is a smart guy, and is working on getting into Harvard, but his home life is really interfering. He meets fellow students who befriend him and help him try to continue on with his goal. What I like about this story is that it has mostly good, competent acting, and doesn&#39;t rely on having a big name &quot;guest star&quot; to attract viewers.<br/><br/>There are some minor errors and so-so scenes here and there, but overall, an interesting, believable story. Strong performance by Raf Rogers, who plays &quot;Carlos&quot;, Alex&#39;s roomie at one of the homes. Also by DeeJay Jackson (Henry, the driver) who has been in TONS of things since the 1980s. Directed by Mark Jean, who has directed both films and TV series. A good entertaining film. There are much worse ways to spend two hours.

All good acting but I was especially impressed w the acting of MacKenzie Porter playing the foster-sister. She is really talented, and I thought stood out.
