I rented "Digger" not expecting much more than an eighty-minute kiddie

mysterious, exotic world our planet is. Joshua Jackson gives the best
performance by a young actor in the 1990s, in his portrayal of Billy, a
young mage who befriends the lonely title character (Adam
This is a movie that gets better with repeated viewings. The only other film of its kind that has similar power is 1995's "The Cure".
