At the beginning of the movie when the boy catches the Mazeroski home run that won the 1960 World Series, it was a Rawlings baseball. Rawlings did not begin supplying baseballs to the major leagues until around 1970. The home run ball would have been a Spalding baseball in 1960. See more »

A Little Jewel (DVD)
14 June 2009 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

Maybe 10 is a little overrated but i didn't expect to enjoy this movie so much. This was a real good surprise:

I imagined that it would be a romance taking place in Egypt while it is rather a treasure hunt all around the world: north and south America, Germany, Greece and Egypt… It is very exotic and the middle-east locations are beautiful: the pyramids, the mosque…

I also really like how Andie carries the entire movie on her shoulders alone. Her drive is interesting and not so common by the way. Only Angelina Jolie got characters like this.

It is also an eye-opener for charities because it seems that they have to deal with the devil to achieve their humanitarian goals.

As always, Liam Neeson plays a trustworthy and dedicated man.
