Boy with powers wants to be accepted
18 July 2001 | by (Gotheburg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in Poland in a cinema sometime 1987 or 1988. Being quite a little boy then I liked this film very much. It's about this boy with telekinetic powers who just wants to be like everyone. Quite nice little story if you're 8-9 years old. Would recommend it for children as the story and the boys powers are very fascinating for the youngsters (at least I felt like that).
