Well, it's not a boy movie! I admit, I spent the first 15 minutes trying to dislike the film but just couldn't, as I stayed with it. My take is that it is essentially a wry parody of modern literary achievement - or maybe not. The title character reminded me of the guy you had to run into in college if he decided you were a fellow loner and a good listener. Very good acting all around.

Oh, and Liam Aiken is a total little charmer. :-) He appears in only the last 25 minutes of a 136 minute film.
