Father Hood is a 1993 adventure comedy-drama film starring Patrick Swayze and Halle Berry and directed by Darrell Roodt.


The kids of small-time crook Jack Charles (Patrick Swayze) are put in a corrupt state-run home called Bigelow Hall when their mother dies of cancer. Jack's teenage daughter Kelly (Sabrina Lloyd) escapes Bigelow, and convinces Jack to pick up her younger brother Eddie (Brian Bonsall). At first, Jack tries to dump them with his mother, but she is a gambler and a cheat, so the cops are after her, too. He then takes the kids to New Orleans with him, where he plans to pull off a big heist that could set him up for life.



Father Hood was shot in Los Angeles, California, Hoover Dam, Arizona-Nevada Border, Las Vegas, Nevada, San Antonio, Texas, and New Orleans, Louisiana.
