The scene where Gabe gets in trouble for running off with Rosemary was a real event that happened to the director with his girlfriend when he was 16. See more »
When Gabe runs into Rosemary as she and the nanny are taking her little sister to a birthday party in Central Park, the sister is in a stroller. Afterwards, when they all meet up again, there is no stroller. See more »
See, life is about so much more than Rosemary. I had my family, my health, my kicking career. I really had no room for a woman in my life.

In Manhattan, the 10 ¾ years old Gabe (Josh Hutcherson) finds his first love when he meets his former kindergarten mate, the eleven years old Rosemary (Charlie Ray), in his karate classes. Confused with his new feelings and with the divorce process of his beloved parents, Leslie (Cynthia Nixon) and Adam (Bradley Whitford), he experiences the delightful unknown sensation of being in love for the first time.
When my friends from the best rental in Rio de Janeiro recommended this movie, I was quite reluctant to buy it. Fortunately I listened to their advice and saw this great little gem. The sensitive director Mark Levin has captured many adorable scenes and sequence of this lovely and charming central pair in delightful situations. Further, orphans of "Sex & the City" like me have the chance to see Cynthia Nixon (Miranda) and Willie Garson (Stanford Blatch) again. I would like to thank you, Cris and my dearest friends of Imaginario, for your recommendation. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "O ABC do Amor" ("The ABC of Love")
