Good Movie
23 December 2001 | by (Boston, Ma) – See all my reviews

Family Tree is a good movie, although not award winning, it has a good lesson. I liked the feeling of an entire town coming together for a cause. The movie is about a kid named Mitch (Andy Lawrence) who isn't the most coordinated or popular kid in town. His best friend is a tree. It doesn't help him to have an overshadowing older brother Mark (Matt Lawrence), who also is the narrator. His dad (Robert Forester) is desperate to get a business going in their town and the have to build a town where Old Oak (the kids tree is). You get the picture. Overall is was a good movie so I give it 6/10
