Amazing Film!
5 December 2003 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

Jacque Dollion get's it right with this small film about a good of pre-teens who become friends despite tough circumstances.

I won't bother going into the plot because that is basically it, but the intriguing thing is that most 13 year olds who would veiw this film would understand why these kids would do what they do, whereas adults are shocked and probably would hate the film because of it. But this is how kids think and act - being un-exposed to the real world and living in a sort of half childhood and half adulthood, not really fitting in to either one, and trying to be in both.
