A great boy movie, even if the boys in the movie are little more than scenery, Fuzzy will sneak into your heart and tug on the strings! I think this was Tobey's movie debut!

This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. The story had a nice symmetry to it -- starting the story in an orphanage and ending the story there. Hot-button issues like abortion are dealt with in a frank manner, while weaving in a fine coming-of-age story.

Thematically, I loved the point made by the filmmaker (based on the book) that humans sometimes must ignore "the rules" and find the right way to go. Excellent point and excellent film!
