Lone Star Kid
24 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

Lone Star Kid is a surprisingly good film. It is a recounting of a true story in which a young boy is elected mayor of a small Texas community. The script is well-written, with dialogue that seems very natural. The acting is fresh and genuine, and the Texas accents are accurate. I feel certain some of the actors are not professionals, but some are indeed veterans. (It is always a pleasure to see James Earl Jones.) This movie is less than 90 minutes in length, and it was clearly made on a small budget, but it was made with sincerity and heart. Produced by "Happy Days" alumni Ron Howard and Anson Williams, it is a good family film that, yes, even adults can enjoy.
