This is an oldie but a must watch. The film follows a just-divorced man, Ted Kramer (played by Dustin Hoffman), who has to learn how to take care of his son on his own, after his wife Joanna (played by Meryl Streep) leaves. Ted has to turn his life upside down to learn how to care for his son, and when he finally learns how to do so, his wife returns and he is forced to fight in court to keep custody of his son.

You watch at Ted and his son figure out how to function together and before your eyes Ted becomes the Dad he was truly meant to be. When his wife returns and puts the father son relationship into jeopardy you will actually get mad at Joanna! She left, so why would she deserve to gain custody?? Unfortunately the movie takes place in the late 1970s when fathers rarely won custody battles…

You will have to watch the movie to find out how it all ends up though…
