Book Description (taken from Amazon.com)
The hilarious, implausible, and touching story of twin brothers accomplishing the impossible—making a feature film (with a cast and crew with 11 Academy Awards and 26 nominations) with no experience, no money and no contacts.
When identical twin brothers Logan and Noah Miller's homeless father died alone in a jail cell, they vowed, come hell or high water, that their film, Touching Home, would be made as a dedication to their love for him. Either You're in or You're in the Way is the amazing story of how—without a dime to their names nor a single meaningful contact in Hollywood—they managed to write, produce, direct, and act in a feature film alongside four-time Academy Award-nominated actor Ed Harris and fellow nominees Brad Dourif and Robert Forster.
Either You're in or You're in the Way tells of the desperate struggle of two sons fighting to keep a vow to their father, and in so doing, creating a better life for themselves. A modern-day Horatio Alger on steroids, this fast-paced thrill ride of heartbreak and redemption will both captivate and inspire.
Logan and Noah Miller are two amazing men who beat the odds and did the impossible. Their story is one of inspiration and an unshakable commitment to make a movie about their father's life. Their father was a man who most children would have put down and not have held the love and reverence that these two did for him.
Their story is written in a matter of fact and sometimes harsh manner, but still holds an amazing sense of humor throughout. I am totally in awe of these two. They never took no for an answer and never quit. They always looked for a solution to their problems and when one door closed, they found a way to pry that door open and walk right on through it!
These amazing men have written a story about making a film (starring Ed Harris!!) without any experience, but there is so much more to the book than that. They have written a story about faith, perseverance, and commitment. It is a book that should be read by all older teens and adults. It shows one how the word "no" and "impossible" are just words - words that should never get in the way of dreams.
I loved this book and adored the authors' prose and humor. There's no doubt about it - they (and their story) are amazing!
