Goofs

After admitting to his parents that he was playing stickball instead of visiting Naomi on the fourth day, Alan throws himself face-up on the couch and puts a newspaper over his face while his shirttails, which are not tucked in, fall back revealing his stomach (at 0:33:39 on the Feature Films for Families version and again at 0:34:25). As his father comes to the couch Alan's shirttails are neatly arranged, covering his stomach and belt (at 0:34:36). See more »

Haas Lifts This Teen Melodrama
27 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Normally, I wouldn't go for a movie centered around two young teens but this is well-done and one of the actors, Lukas Haas, is a veteran despite his age. (He was the little Amish boy in "Witness").

Haas is outstanding in here, particularly in conveying his feelings throughout the film. It's a story that could easily be trite or corny but winds up appealing with no unpleasant scenes overdone. That could have happened since the girl (Vanessa Zaoui) is a traumatized kid with several mental problems. Michael Gross and Amy Aquino, meanwhile, do a decent job of playing Jewish parents and it's nice to see a father portrayed in a positive light, for a change.

In summary, a good and somewhat underrated melodrama
