Brilliant movie

Although I can't say I've read any of the books, Little Women or Little Men, I CAN say that this movie is fantastic. For an independent film, I'm absolutely impressed. You wouldn't have thought it to be independent at all- the scenery is marvelous, the acting is wonderful, the plot tantalizing, and best of all, the characters are attracting in the most interesting way and never did I lose interest in the movie. Also, I might add, the camera work and lighting is excellent. You could tell that this movie was obviously made by professionals, but never once did the earlier centriuth feeling leave at all. You feel like you're a part of their lives, it's great! I love this movie much better than I liked Little Women- I think Little Women was too slow in the beginning and too fast at the end so it left you both exhausted and feeling like the movie was long, but still didn't get to the point in time. Anyway, I tell anyone who wants to see a story about adventure, discipline, and finding home, rent this movie about two street urchins who struggle to adapt to the 'be good and obedient' manners of Joe's house.
