  • 5 stars "Great movie, but I didn't realize when she said she wasn't a girl that she wasn't actually female. It really wasn't clear, I only found that out afterwards when I read a review."
  • 5 stars "I'm not sure if I saw this correctly, but does the little girl turn into an old woman at one point, and then back again? And was she wearing contacts to make her eyes look bigger? Great movie, gives you so much to think about."
  • 5 stars "Great film. Very touching and intriguing. The scene in the pool is extremely well acted. I couldn't get out of my mind the little boy's expressions, worried when one bully showed up, relieved and happy when it appeared he was just there to have fun and play, terrified out of his mind when the bigger bully showed up, and so on. The two kids in the lead roles were just amazing."
