A look at how divorce can affect a young child.
25 September 2004 | by (Kearny, NJ) – See all my reviews

This movie starts out with the separation of two parents. Their young son is a good person and is given a lot of really wise lines. He goes to live with his wealthy father and his girlfriend for six months. When he arrives there he finds a world of servants and a flamboyant overbearing tutor. His father is always busy with work and his girlfriend is trying to relate to the boy but finds it difficult.

Because of the standards of 1930's cinema they don't get into there being any horrible effects on the boy but this is probably one of the first films to address how divorce can be rough on a child. The boy stays strong throughout the whole film though and of course there is a relatively happy conclusion.

Although it delt with some serious issues this film had a good amount of comic relief and really presented a few charming characters.
