I finally watched “Smoke Signals.” and I have to say it was touching and almost spiritual in depth the way it dealt with a father/son conflict. The Native American culture has so much to offer us even now in 2015. If you’re a dad or a son, this one’s for you. Check out this haunting quote Thomas recites at the end of the film:
How do we forgive our fathers?
Maybe in a dream
Do we forgive our fathers for leaving us too often or
forever when we were little?
. . .
Do we forgive our fathers in our age or in theirs or in their
deaths, saying it to them, or not saying it?
If we forgive our fathers, what else is left?
