An Innocent Love- Genius Matures ***
21 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a coming of age film with a genius, who at 14, is already a junior in college.

This film explores the problem of accelerated children developing socially. It is nicely done.

Of course, our 14 year old falls in love with the young lady who he is tutoring and is asked to have her not do well on a final exam so that she will not transfer out.

What makes the film so good is the maturity level that our genius matures to. People who are older don't even show such maturity. This is well-worth viewing.
