Perfect exploration of a child connecting to the world
21 June 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

There are so few opportunities these days for children to feel connected to their natural surroundings. The magically natural setting for "Storm Boy" lifts the soul and heightens the emotional responses to the issues of growing up, connecting, letting go. This film is an absolute treasure chest of discovery for children and former children alike.
