Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Keeping secrets is difficult and, sometimes, unhealthy. Emily (Evan Rachel Wood) discovers a talent for keeping secrets early in life and deems the skill marketable enough to open her own neighborhood business. Emily is also an amazing violin player with high aspirations for a musical career. Secret-keeping proves lucrative at first, but eventually the burden weighs on Emily and affects her ability to concentrate, hurting her chances of making the local youth symphony. Resolving her dilemma requires the help of two new friends, her violin teacher, parents, and a fair amount of soul-searching. Eventually, Emily's journey leads to the dissolution of her business and a cathartic revelation of a major secret of her own. The moral of Emily's experiences: "You can't keep secrets about yourself and live a true life," and "if you want to be close to someone, you can't keep secrets from them." (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Emily Lindstrom, a gifted 14-year-old violinist, skips summer camp in order to prepare for an audition with the prestigious San Francisco Youth Orchestra. Emily has also set up a side business as a "secret keeper", charging a 50-cent fee to share and keep the neighborhood children's secrets. She soon discovers, however, that there is a price to keeping secrets that can't be measured in coins.

5.0 out of 5 stars depth , sensitivity & humor in a family movie February 13, 2003
By Marit
Format:DVD
This movie delighted even my husband - who does not do the kid flick thing. My children all loved it - age 6-10, though only the eight and up crowd understood all of the elements. What amazed the adults is that here was a charming movie of an unusual but believable over-achiever who simply profits by keeping secrets for other children. The characters we follow through the movie are entirely entertaining, although there were a few minor lapses in acting believability in some of the younger children in supporting roles.
The movie keeps the audience interested and entertained from one element to another as the secret keeper's own secrets sensitively unfold. We considered this worth watching several times and that is not something we usually do.
The drama of the story is not quite Oscar Material, maybe a 4.5 stars, but for a family movie, Mom and Dad will be pleasantly surprised and satisfied that it was money - and time - well spent. If you are looking for a stirring and entertaining movie for children age 8-100, this one should please everyone. I strongly recommend this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hits all the right notes- great family viewing! June 18, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
If you're looking for a wonderful movie to watch with your kids, check out this one...it tells a very believable story with heart and integrity. Although it is probably geared towards females ages 7-12, it kept this adult riveted.
At the heart of the film is fourteen year old Emily (played by Rachel Wood) who is the neighborhood "secret keeper", charging a small fee so that the neighborhood children can unload their guilty consciences (and sometimes a broken item or two) with her. Unbeknownst to her young clients, however, Emily has her own secret, a huge one, which she has been hiding for years.
Meanwhile, complications ensue as Emily finds that secrets and lie have a way of growing more difficult to hide.
All of this unfolds in a very believable way. How refreshing to find a film that teaches solid values without heavy moralizing or preaching to its audience. I'm buying several copies to give as gifts because I think films like this deserve support..and, hopefully, more like this will be made. Highest recommendation for this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly good July 13, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
For a person who does not exactly fit into the demographic for this movie nor likes that many kid flicks, I must say I thouroughly enjoyed this movie. The story is well-written and, taking into account the fact that this is a family movie, it is extremely well-acted. It tells the story of Emily and her neighborhood business of secret-keeper and her relization that keeping others' secrets (and hiding your own) is complicated. It also has charming subplots about first love, a new baby and determination, as well as the sorted secrets of all the kids in Emily's neighborhood Anyone who has seen either of the three principal actors in anything else will in my opinion be pleased with the movie and also find themselves feeling good after seeing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little secrets March 7, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Wow what a great family movie!After having read a great review I decided to buy it. Normally I like to view a movie first before buying. Everyone loved it in our family from our 6 and 10 year old sons and our 12 year old up to my husband and I. We have several action adventure movies,but those are a dime a dozen these days. My Husbands favors surf documentries, and silly cartoons are among my kids favorites. While I like comedy and romance, usually they are not appropriate for young viewers. Little secrets is truely a thoughtfully fun movie that quietly surrounds your heart. My question is when is the director going to make another? Thanks to the director and Tri Star for making something worth everyone watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet & Funny Family Film February 6, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I love it when a movie comes along that entertains adults in the audience along with their kids. I thought the developing friendships and the strengthening family relationship were themes from which we could all learn and grow. Both the boys were adorable and Evan Rachel Wood was just fantastic. I loved the scenes where she interacted with her parents, who were wonderfully cast. In fact its interesting to note that the true life story of the woman who played the pregnant mother in the movie, Jan Broberg Felt, is written in a book available here on Amazon called Stolen Innocence: The Jan Broberg Story. It was a very interesting book and an amazing story.
