Little Boy – I cry at the end of the movie

Little BoyFilm and television reviews by our resident autistic film critic Maymay.

LITTLE BOY is a powerful and moving film about a little boy who is willing to do whatever it takes to bring his dad home from World War II alive. The heartwarming story will capture your heart and lift your spirits as it reveals the indescribable love a little boy has for his father and the love a father has for his son. Set in the 1940s, LITTLE BOY is an instant cinematic classic that captures the wonder of life through the eyes of an 8- year-old little boy. Written and directed by Smithsonian Institute Award winning director Alejandro Monteverde, LITTLE BOY highlights themes of faith, hope and love in the face of adversity.

This movie was a good but sad movie.Pepper and his father were like best friends. They did everything together. His father has to go to war and he doesn’t want him to go. I thought it was cute how he believed that he could bring his father back. I didn’t like how everyone made fun of him including his own brother, London. I also didn’t like the way the people were treating Hashimoto just because he was Japanese. Dr.Fox was nice to try to help Pepper’s family but he did it for a jerkish reason. His son was the biggest bully in the movie or maybe his brother was. They both treated Pepper really bad. I did cry at the end of the movie but it was really sweet.
