One of the most enjoyable movies I've ever discovered.
The delightful depiction of young Arlo's troubled adolescence is full of lessons for adults even moreso than the kids. I wasn't familiar with the child actors, but I certainly enjoyed their performances. Shelly Duval and Elliott Gould are parents who make us examine our own parental behavior, and laugh at ourselves. All the dozen or so kids I've shown this movie to (aged 8-13) loved it and said it was a keeper!
