Pulled heart strings for me..
22 December 2003 | by (FLORIDA, USA) – See all my reviews

It was hard to judge this movie unbiased as i am a product of a broken marriage and went through alot of things that the young child in this movie went through. And you know its amazing to me..if this kid didnt win some kind of award for his performance, it was enough to touch my heart. And i also noticed that of all those who voted on this movie, a large percentage of people rated it a 10, guess im not alone in having this movie touch me. Because when your as young as the main character was, and things happen to you that arent your fault and are beyond your control, you feel alone..so very Alone.
