Wonder ful

A heartwarming story of a 5th grader, who has been home schooled by mom, Julia Roberts, and now must enter school for the first time. He has had 27 operations to correct his face disfigurement. The movie is really about us as reflected in our kids in their meanness, their bullying, and their view of being different.
There are many fine messages in this movie about love, understanding, kindness and loyalty.
It also shows the downside of being a sibling of the special kid in the family who draws all the attention. Owen Wilson does a good job as the dad. I could watch Mandy Patankin in any role and here he is the cool school principal.It gets a bit marmy and soapy but I hope young kids go and see it. We need a lot of positives these days and this movie is one for the good guys.

    I wholeheartedly agree. Kids, & adults as well, need to view acts of love, kindness & tolerance, in juxtiposition to everything negative that comes from the person who heads our country, for now.
