About a Boy
A movie review? Are you kidding? She's giving a movie review on some obscure old movie?
Despite starring Hugh Grant, this is a pretty decent story. I don't know about Hugh's acting, all actors appear about equally matched to me, and I don't know sqat about film making. I'm no Roger Ebert Roeper, but I did enjoy this movie. There's apparently a book, too, which might be even better, but I have no way of knowing since I haven't read it.
This is the story of an aimless thirty-something and an unguided 12 year old and how they meet and find they need each other. The boy needs shoes and the man needs purpose.
You will cry if you see this movie. If you've never seen it, do. If you have seen it, watch it again. Do what I say, or you'll pay.
