The Kids Grow Up is an excellent documentary
13 July 2011 | by EwallersteinSee all my reviews

The Kids Grow Up is an excellent documentary about some of lives harsher truths: growing up, moving on, and letting go. Filmmaker Doug Block lets us into his world as he prepares for his only daughter, Lucy, to head off to college. Block's struggle as he copes with her leaving and his fear of "the empty nest" make for a truly moving film that both parents and their kids can relate to. As someone who isn't particularly fond of documentaries, I found The Kids Grow Up to leave me just as touched as some of my favorite movies. It takes you back to a time where you wish everything was as thrilling as your daughter's first pair of earrings but also leaves you with the knowledge that the future holds so much potential, excitement, and tons more memories to look forward to. I definitely recommend The Kids Grow Up, watch it as a family and enjoy.
