A joyous homecoming in The Railway Children. (Storyline aside, who wouldn’t be elated to run into Michael Kitchen’s arms?) I love how he’s enveloped by her voluminous shawl as they embrace, making the reunion of husband and wife all the more intimate and romantic.
In one of his most genial roles, Michael Kitchen appears only at the beginning and end of The Railway Children (2000), yet his emotional scenes in which Father is finally reunited with his family after being wrongly imprisoned for espionage are probably the most memorable in the film.
Doesn't matter how many times I watch it - Bobby's "daddy my daddy" at the end of "The Railway Children" gets me every time 😢😢—
