This is a family movie that has it all. It is naïve, natural, funny and moving. I watched it three times over two weeks before returning it to Netflix. Each time, I caught something different.
The story is narrated through the eyes of an 11 year old boy who lives in Manhattan and whose parents are about to get a divorce. In the midst of all these changes in life, the boy falls in love for the very first time…While the movie gives a beautiful description of innocent first love, it has good emphasis on parent-child relationship especially that of the father & son. It also slightly touches on the basics of maintaining the initial atmosphere of love in a marriage.. This cute story is enhanced visually with Manhattan as the backdrop.
I enjoyed it so much, hope you do too.
