    Has anyone else seen this undistributed and underrated gem? I watched it last night before going to bed and today, despite it being a movie about two kids, I still can't quite shake it.
    The boy expresses fears and experiences I think we've all felt at some point or another. The girl is wonderfully sweet yet enigmatic. They are delightful toogether in a way that never feels cloying or saccharine. There are some gimmicky scenes, but there are also scenes that are played for their full brutal honesty.
    The movie also captures a Manhattan full of romance and possibility. The movie is like the most beautiful spring day without all of the sketchy riff-raff, all movie long.

    It got limited distribution, because I saw it in a theater. It's a charming film, told from a child's perspective but informed by an adult's experience.
