Dove Review

“Will” is a charming film of one young man’s dreams which he hopes to be fulfilled. Will has lost his mother and when his father returns after a three year span, Will is overjoyed at being reunited with him. Both are big fans of the lovable Liverpool FCs team and Will is elated when his Dad presents him with tickets for the Championship game. But all that changes when Will receives sad news about his Dad.

He must not let fear stand in his way of his dreams. That is what his Dad had told him. So Will sets out to fulfill his dream of going to the great game by himself. Along the way he finds some help in a Bosnian man named Alex and he has some dreams of his own. The two become friends and that leads them on the road to Istanbul.

This is a story about following your dreams and helping others in need. We approve this film with the “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
