Category: #24 A philosophical movie

This movie has been on my watch list ever since I heard about it and I’m glad I made the time for it because it’s such a lovely movie. It grapples with the question of what do you do when you’re left to raise someone else’s kid. Is it better to put them ahead in school just because they’re smart or to keep them in a regular class to have a regular childhood? And do you have any kind of moral obligation to do either of those things.

Both the casting and the acting in this film are top notch as well as the interactions between them. It’s really just a cute film to watch and definitely makes me wonder what I would choose to do if it were my kid who was ‘gifted’.

What would you do?

Rating: 4/5 stars
