Big Screen Dads: Our 10 Favorite Movie Dads
Jed, played by Benjamin Bratt, in The Lesser Blessed
Sixteen-year-old Larry, Dogrib tribe, lives with some hard realities: a tragic past and an empty future. Jed, his mother’s sometime boyfriend, is a traditional Slavey Indian trapper who steps in as a father figure, tells all the right stories, and after a lot of push-back he earns Larry’s trust. He’s funny and warm, honest and strong, and gives Larry a feeling of contentment he never imagined possible.
