A week ago, I did a movie post and asked for recommendations. Christina recommended Little Manhattan, so I moved it to the top of my Netflix queue. Well, it arrived and I watched it last night. I smiled all the way through it, albeit sometimes the smile was from bittersweet memories, not just sweet ones. I may be a long, long way from 11 years old, but I still remember those feelings of first love. Here’s the Netflix description:
Director Mark Levin’s (Wimbledon) quirky tale of first love puts the spotlight on pint-sized passion. Against the backdrop of the Big Apple, young urbanites Gabe (Josh Hutcherson) and Rosemary (Charlie Ray) explore their budding emotions. And there’s one thing that makes them perfect for each other: They’re both in the fifth grade. Cynthia Nixon and Bradley Whitford co-star in this winning comedy that proves bigger isn’t necessarily better.
If you want a sweet romance story, this one is for you. I gave it a five star rating. A real winner. Thanks, Christina, for the recommendation.
