Big Girl scores Big!
3 March 2006 | by liu-centSee all my reviews

When nine-year-old Josephine (Samantha Weinstein) meets her mother's new boyfriend, Gerry (Kris Holden-Reid from The Tudors) she immediately wants him out of the picture and agrees to enter into a playful competition with him over her Mom. The stakes are high - if she wins, Gerry agrees to stop seeing her mother, but if he wins, she must be nice to him. But as the competition progresses, Josephine begins to learn the big lesson that life will not always deliver in the way she wants it.

Samantha Weinstein's mature and touching performance garnered her the respected 2006 ACTRA Award (Canada's actor's union) for Outstanding Performance - female. Heart-warming yet bittersweet, the film is poignant without giving in to sentimentality. A definite must-see for everyone of all ages.
