I have just seen this movie on an airplane. I was wonderful. It was so accurate about young love and the feelings it brought up, that I was instantly transported back to my childhood! It was funny and touching, and made me forget my surroundings for the full 2 hours! It made me cry in some spots, and laugh out loud in others. All in all I recommend this movie for all who want to take a trip back to their childhood. The lead actor and actress are wonderful, and I expect them to have a very sucessful career. The lead actress is beautiful, and will be a stunning young woman very soon.

One of the genuine surprises to be released in 2005 was Little Manhattan, a charming, precious (without overdoing it) Woody Allen-esque ode to New York City for the elementary school set. It asks that age old question do girls mature faster than boys and proceeds to tell the story of a relationship between a boy and girl from the his point-of-view. The film was given very limited release in theatres and is now out on DVD where it will hopefully find a wider audience.

Most of the action takes place on the Upper West Side and for anyone who's lived there they will recognize familiar landmarks like the Beacon Theater, the Planetarium and Riverside Park. A lot of credit goes to filmmakers Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett for staying true to the geography of the city and shooting entirely on location as they provide a wonderful travelogue of the lesser known side of Broadway.

Little Manhattan doesn't sugarcoat the messiness of relationships and the sometimes bittersweet nature of love no matter what the age. Even when things don't work out, hopefully you learn from the experience and are a better person for having gone through it. Most kid's movies are either too cutesy or try too hard to make them little J.D. Salinger-esque adults. This film gets it just right, treading the line between both, never having too much of one and always maintaining a balance.

There is an audio commentary by director Mark Levin and screenwriter Jennifer Flackett. They consciously wrote their movie in a way that it had to be shot in New York City and could not be doubled in Toronto as is commonly done. Levin and Flackett acknowledge Woody Allen as an obvious influence on their movie, citing Annie Hall specifically, and also When Harry Met Sally.

Although I'm just past that age when kids experience those first "puppy love" experiences, this movie hit home with me. I found the movie on accident, and I'm very glad. I was in Blockbuster one day, scanning the new releases section, and I came upon a movie with two kids on the front. Naturally, I had a look, since most of the movies around were publicizing sex and all the stuff you normally see today, and this one had KIDS on the front. Can you believe that?!??! I watched it one time and was hooked.

Little Manhattan follows two 10-year-olds who live in the heart of New York City and have known each other since kindergarten. Sure, Gabe and Rosemary were friends when they were very little and naive. But in first grade, boys and girls just started not hanging out. They were apparently completely different species, and if a girl even barely touched a boy, he had cooties and was terminally ill forever. The two kids see each other in karate class, but remain only acquaintances in that part of their lives. At school, things remained the same. When they become sparring partners, Gabe is less than thrilled, but happy he has a familiar face in the class. But as the two get to know each other better, you can see them falling for each other bit by bit as the friendship develops. But love can be hard, and that's what Gabe realizes as his parents are going through a divorce at the same time.

This love story's setting in beautiful Manhattan and Central Park, paired with an amazing soundtrack, makes the story even more attractive. I really want to see the sights of New York now. The lead actor and actress (although Josh Hutcherson, who portrays Gabe, has already been fairly successful) have promising careers ahead. They did so well at truly showing what its like to have a first love. I rate this movie 5+ stars, it's one of the best-and one of the best-kept secrets-of the year!!

OK, finally the wait was finally over and Australian audiences got to see the movie... In MARCH!

I went with my two girlfriends to see it last Sunday afternoon. I had read the reviews where people had said the dialog was too old for the Gabe... I disagree... considering he is an only child of what can be assumed to be professional parents - in this world of instant and constant media, a 11 year old in that situation could well be versed in what was going on around him.

I went with the expectation to enjoy the movie... but I was really quite suprised that it twanged at my heart strings right at the end... I'm not ashamed to admit, I got a little misty eyed when Adam told his son he had cleared out some of the spare room... it was so sweet.

Loved it, can't wait to get my copy!

Okay to watch with 10 year olds plus. Told from the voice of a boy who has his first puppy love and all the angst that goes with it. He also has amazing freedom to run around by himself in the big city, a feature my 10 year old granddaughter noted. She is an urban Chicago kid and is NEVER running around the city by herself. Mildly enjoyable for me and pretty interesting to the granddaughter.
