Loved this gorgeous movie! The 'martian child' actor was just adorable. John Cusack played a sensitive, yet poignant part as the adoptive father. A great watch for children too :))
Nice to see a movie based on a true story that - despite being different from the truth - still apparently has the writer's approval. Slowish, but really a nice story about actually choosing to do good things and to love a child who may appear difficult, but who is, of course, worth the effort.
A very simple nice story. Had it's good moments but not one to rush out an see
Very cleaver and beautiful movie about some wonderfully written people This is a must see for anyone with even the smallest amount of a soft side. Never has family been shown so beautifly before now and never has a child been cuter.
I fell in love with the characters in this movie very quickly and enjoyed it from start to end. Great acting and a beautiful, feel-good story.
Great movie reminded me of my autistic foster child which lived with us for 8 years. First flim with John Cusack I liked.
The speel about this movie covers the story but I was amazed to find it's based on a true story. It does illustrate some problems parents face when they allow the child to 'be himself' - which is not easy when you're a kid and don't know who you are. Kids are just learning to be people and need guidance. In this movie it's hard to tell who is the kid and who is the foster father. Also, I wonder why everything has to be said in whispers. These days movie people seem to think the bad guys shout and the good guys whisper. You need to sound way up for this movie. Worth seeing.
Great movie. Well worth watching
Quite an impressive performance from the youngster and John Cusack was pretty reliable but we really wanted the kid to be a Martian in the end. It was okay but not something we really enjoyed. Not very memorable.
This was a great movie with John Cusack giving a great performance- i think he is getting better with age, as well as a mature performance by the child actor
I also love this movie and am a big fan of john cusack . The little boy was amazing what a future he has in fron of him . Highly recommend.
Alright movie. Good message for all parents at the end.
this movie is well worth watching, one of those movies that stay with you. john cusack what an excellent role he played,
I really liked this film
A quiet slow paced movie.
The child actor who played the Martian was fantastic.
I liked this movie :P great story and was shocked it was based upon a true one :P
I thought this was a good movie!! Was amazed that it was actually based (wateva lol) on a true story! Good performance by John
I absolutely loved this movie. It's very quiet and slowly paced and could even be accused of being sappy but somehow - probably thanks to a perfect performance by John Cusack - it captivated me. I've re-watched this a few times and fall for it a little more with each viewing. If only John Cusack would adopt me... or at least take me home for a pet.
