I don't know why Ford said this was his favorite movie to make - it was DEFINITELY not mine to watch. Very hard and very difficult to see a man treat his wife and children like that. Good lessons in how to be better.

I remember seeing a reality show with a very similar story as this movie about a family from Great Britain that moved to i think it was the Philippines to start a resort on one of the islands there. The husband died just like in this movie leaving behind a wife and children.
