Eleven-year-old Maria loses her little brother to cancer. Her mother retreats into deep depression; her father attempts to keep the family emotionally afloat. Sent to her grandparents' home for the summer, Maria meets Jacob, also an eleven-year-old, but with a completely different attitude to life and loss - he is an outgoing, adventurous latch-key kid with wisdom way beyond his tender years.

I found this movie while flicking through the channels and found it to be an exceptionally made coming-of-age tale about a young girl. The performances were brilliant, as was the writing and the direction was first-class. I only saw the final half-hour of this film, but if that is anything to go by, then this is an incredible film. I shall look for a copy of this film on video so that I may see the rest of this sensational piece of film making. When I do, I shall post a more complete comment.
