"I'm Not a Professional Film Watcher. I Just Like Movies. And I Really Liked It."

Matt Archbold on Little Boy:

I watched the new movie "Little Boy" with my nine year old son and seven year old daughter. We all loved it. It is a beautiful story about faith and love. It's the kind of movie you just don't see anymore.
The story centers around the faith of a young boy who, at the request of a local priest played by the Littleboygreat actor Tom Wilksinson, decided that bringing his father back alive from World War II depends on him performing the corporal works of mercy. The movie is told through the child's eyes. 
The child named Pepper is played by a super cute actor named Jakob Salvati. The kid really delivers a moving performance. 
I read some reviews from professional reviewers who seem to find the movie "cloying" or "syrupy" or "obvious." I'm not a professional film watcher. I just like movies. And I really liked it. My kids did as well. And there's many lessons for the kids here as well such as being brave and having faith even in the face of insurmountable odds. What's wrong with a movie that I can watch with my family without worrying what they'll be exposed to? 
If you want more movies to be made like this we have to go see it. I advise all to take your spouse, your kids, and their friends to this movie.

He's got a bit more, check it out.

I had planned on seeing the movie myself and now I'm even more primed to go.

Thanks Matt.
