a beautiful little film
23 October 2008 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

A fantastically natural performance by the lead child actor is central to this beautiful little film. The rest of the cast also put in creditable showings, but it is the lead on whom the film hangs.

The scenery is beautiful - showing Britain at its best in the middle of summer, and an old school adds to the atmosphere.

The storyline is innovative, so I won't give it away, but it is both challenging and light at the same time !

I'm not sure why the title was chosen - it doesn't seem to relate to the content of the film.

Definitely worth seeing.
