Long ago one said: "Give me a god kid and you will see how great parent am I". But reality is somewhat different. This is a great story about growing; finding identity, but ... Being a parent for a while I would say that Jack's way of thinking is something that I saw with my daughter, rather than son. The way he understands social relations is more feminine. Someone could expect that Jack is more vulnerable than he really is. His self-confidence is unexpectedly high. Nevertheless, movie keeps attention till the end, and moral of the story is intact. Film has good rhythm, sometimes catchy photography with emphasis on ordinary urban life situations. Really good family movie that any parent could discuss with their youngster!
