Storyline

The unusual story of a boy who will never grow. Born with a disease that makes his bones brittle, Brit, as he is appropriately named by his mom, will be four feet tall for life. But he doesn't think small. He has his own spirited way of dealing with the world, and the cast of characters that surrounds him helps ensure that life is never dull: an eccentric mom, a dad with movie star looks, a doting sister, and numerous other mentors, lovers (both male and female), and charlatans who come in and out of the picture.

Should be required viewing in schools, uplifting
1 July 2000 | by pyotr-3See all my reviews

This film is very uplifting, and what a shame that folks like Jesse Helms & the Republican Congress would never allow it to even be shown in schools. It would transform lives. This film shows a man taking lemons and making lemonade - a great lesson for all. A magnificent role model for all, and just think how much HOPE this film could give to disabled and gay children of all ages. If only we had intelligent leaders who actually cared about the disabled and the gay.

The main character is real, so the film is a kind of part-real, part-acted re-enactment of his life. And by the end of the film, you feel as if you have learned something about dealing with adversity. What a shame we have so few films which do this.
