Joseph Cross, the best young actor.
11 February 2001 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Well, I'm here now, writing this message, just because Joseph Cross. Northern Lights was the first movie that I saw with Joseph, and I started to pay attention, and he's incredible, and in this movie, when he makes that feeling scenes, is very real and can bring you inside of the movie. He has a gift, he can make the emotions come out. And I almost cried too. It's a very nice movie, and I want to watch more movies with him.
