Little Boy Movie is finally a movie you can take the whole family to and not just be entertained, but actually connect with what'd going on.
26 April 2015 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

"Little Boy" is a film full of lessons and it motivates you to believe like a child, to have faith of a child, to love your neighbor and to do good to others. It inspires you to be a better person. "Little Boy" was beautiful made and has phenomenal acting. Its a film made for all ages.

A surprisingly moving, poignant and memorable family film about faith, family and friendship. I was not expecting much more than a feel good movie, but was moved much more deeply throughout the entire movie by depth of the story line, the excellent acting and the engaging plot lines. Definitely worth seeing more than once and worth bringing the entire family. It's about time there were strong films for the entire family like this one.It is fantastic film and a break through in Christian films! A story with heart, emotion, drama, comedy, and faith. We get some great performances from Emily Watson, David Henrie, Ted Levine, Kevin James, Tom Wilkinson, Cary- Hiroyuki Tagawa and the film's shinning star, Jakob Salvati. The story never sacrifices itself for preaching its message of faith; it trusts the audience that they'll be smart enough to see it. This film is sure to inspire even the most faithless of people and bring many tears of sadness and joy.
