Good family movie with a deeper subject matter then most
My son and I really enjoyed this film. We went to this movie quite by accident – had never heard of it – but was rated PG! How rare is that in this day and age?
The subject matter is deeper then most kids movies – the understanding of pain, losing people we love, and taking that pain to live life and love life to its fullest, not closing up to die. While this may sound like a downer it is not, the characters learn to embrace and recapture their lives in a very upbeat way.
I think one user said sappy – true. But, personally, isn’t it nice to watch a film that is uplifting and makes one think about life, and pain, and living – whether you are 9, like my son, or an adult?
Also, this movie has a certain forgein film quality to it. In my opinion.
Hayden P. is so cute. She has a smile that could melt an ice berg
This film is fantastic. The director has a wonderful imagination. Hayden Panettiere is so cute and boy can she act. Ryan Kelley is also fantastic, but i think Hayden steals the show as Melanie. The story line is a bit slow to start with, but if you keep on watching the film, you will fall in love with Hayden and the way she smiles. The only bit that i don’t understand is when the Ringmaster walks over and grabs onto Ryan and tries to take him back to his house. The grandfather is superb. He is so informative. Even though he played a man with Altzheimerz disease, he is well read. Hayden P. is so hot, i would like to meet her, but if i can’t get to Hollywood, i hope she could come to Australia to shoot a film.
