For young and the young at heart

A truly heartfelt movie that is rewarding, enchanting and also deeply upsetting in parts. Two pre-teens imagine a world in which anything is possible in a way that only children could. Here they escape the day to day grind, be it chores, homework or school pressures. In a break from what you may expect, there are some very unsettling components here that will shake the viewer and that is to be commended. Excellently acted by the two child leads, this is a fine, fine movie.
sweet movie..but with dark undertones!

I was a bit taken aback by the upsetting content of this "family" movie. Parents of sensitive children should beware! That said it is definitely a more engaging watch than most films within it's genre and tackles issues that any child could relate to i.e. - bullying, family arguments, first crush etc..
very upsetting, but exalent

A very well thought out film about the problems with growing up as an outcast at school, and the relationships that are missed, and others that develop unexpectedly.

Marketing made it look like a fantasy film, but it's actually a reality story with a tear jerker that ruins the film completely. Not even the happy ending saves it.
