Touching Home

touching home_book I just read this book by The Miller Brothers about the making of their indie film, TOUCHING HOME, starring Ed Harris (not to be confused with Stealing Home or Coming Home). I’m not sure when the movie’s coming out or if it’s any good, but you can’t help but admire the chutzpah of these guys going all out to get their movie made. You can feel the hope and desperation at every turn.

The only thing I don’t like about their story is the film’s title. It’s an aesthetic thing. I don’t care for any title that begins with the suffix “-ing” — e.g., Finding Forrester, Searching For Bobby Fischer, Teaching Mrs. Tingle…but that’s my problem.
