Every few years, a child actor rises out of the plethora of "cute kids" to show that he really can act. Elijah Wood did it ten years ago; Haley Joel Osment is the most recent. In between the two of them was Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
In "Gregory K", Levitt plays a child trying to "divorce" his abusive parents in the hopes that a loving family can adopt him. Despite some heavy-handed directing (okay, maybe an eleven-year-old boy would mention adoption that often, but it's annoying in a movie, and could his real parents be any more evil?), Levitt's emotive performance begs us to figure out how we can fix a system so obviously flawed with good intentions.
