Storyline

A coming-of-age story set in 1965 that follows 12-year-old Andy Nichol (Chase Ellison), a bright student who, like most kids his age, will do anything to avoid conflict for fear of suffering overwhelming ridicule and punishment from his junior high school peers. Everyone's favorite teacher, Mr. Simon (Ed Harris), pairs Andy with the school's biggest outcast and social pariah, Stanley, aka "Big G" (Alexander Walters), on a critical term project. Sporting thick orange hair, a head too big for his body and ears too big for his head, "Big G" has been the object of ridicule since grade school. Before long, Andy will learn that there was truly a method behind Mr. Simon's madness as to why he teamed these two up. As the story unfolds, Mr. Simon finds himself the target of a malicious rumor after Principal Kelner (Amy Madigan) suspends a school bully for brutally beating up a female classmate whom he thinks has "cooties." When Andy watches "Big G" fearlessly confront the school bully, a ... Written by Anonymous

Absolutely .......... Brilliant !
3 June 2011 | by (Malta) – See all my reviews

Wow ! What a movie . Saw it on DVD only because Ed Harris stars in it. I am very fussy about these sorts of films concerning teenagers , but when one great actor stars in this kind of film , I always have a look.

And thank God Ed Harris starred in this movie. His performance was wonderful ..... definitely Oscar-Worthy . No , I am not kidding , it is great . This movie is underrated , it should have higher ratings , and more exposure.

I am not saying that the young actors did not do a good job , but Ed Harris' experience akes this movie far more realistic and enjoyable.

This movie concerns the theme of bullying and rumors . These affect people's lives . The message that this films wants to give us , suits everyone , both children and adults.

This is one little gem of a film ... great story and acting . I recommend everyone to see it. It is absolutely brilliant.

9/10
