'Little Boy' Review

The inspirational, faith-based World War II drama Little Boy opens later this month and will perhaps appeal to the same audience that turned out for Heaven Is For Real. It's about a young boy who believes that if he follows a local priest's instructions for being a good person, his beloved father will return home safely from the war. But can the boy show kindness to a Japanese-American man after the bombing of Pearl Harbor? Lots of teachable moments, lots of me checking my watch. I reviewed Little Boy for Screen International.
