A review of this — 5 years ago
This movie was very well done. The story reminds me of some brilliant, yet neglected/ignored students I’ve encountered over the years. I’ve shared the movie and the book with my classes whenever appropriate hoping to impart the important message offered by both: Family isn’t everything. Sometimes you have to look outside your circle of blood relatives for the love and support you need.
Highly entertaining. Danny Devito and Rhea Perlman—need I say more?
