My Architect: A Son's Journey

Rating = B

Nathaniel Kahn is the illegitimate son of the famous architect Louis Kahn who died at age 73 when Nathaniel was six years old. The movie is the story of Nathaniel's search to learn: about his father and his architecture, why the architect never came to live with Nathaniel and his mother Harriet, and about the rest of his “family” — Louis's wife Easter and daughter Sue Ann and other illegitimate daughter Alex(andra) and her mother Anne. It is a sad story, but coming to grips with it apparently does Nathaniel some good.
