Popi (1969) - Alan Arkin DVD
A Golden Globe-nominated, "lustrous performance by Alan Arkin highlights [this] well-done ethnic comedy-drama" (Blockbuster Entertainment Guide) about an eccentric father with an outrageous scheme to give his sons a better life.
Arkin is "superb" (Los Angeles Times) as Abraham, a single Puerto Rican father struggling to raise his two sons. But as he watches his boys slide deeper into the ghetto, Abraham seizes on an outlandish plan to give his boys a better life: he sets them adrift in a boat off the Florida coast, hoping that they will be rescued and raised by a wealthy family! But when his kids are taken in by the authorities and he is declared an unfit father, Abraham takes a courageous stand-risking everything-for the chance to hold on to the one thing he loves the most...his family.
