Just watched the movie and I can’t seem to get my mind around it. It is the second or third time I have seen it, and each time, I am riveted by the love that the oil man has for his orphan son.

The ending, where they end up estranged, bothers me to no end.

It is possible that it has to do with the parable of the Prodigal Son/Loving Father. It goes so much against that parable. Strikes me to the core of what my faith in my Heavenly Father is.
