Storyline

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. Their budding friendship helps Maria reach out to her mother so that they can mourn and heal together. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Seamless coming-of-age drama
29 June 2001 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

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.
