This film was not screened for critics locally, so we took a look at the trailer.
Film: Little Boy Opening Date: Fri., April 24 Stars: Jakob Salvati, Emily Watson, Michael Rappaport Necessary Info: “From the producers of Son of God”
Sample dialogue: “But if I have enough faith, nothing’s impossible, right?”
Trailer Analysis: In a perfect vintage movie town — soda fountains, bungalows and clean boys in cloth caps — a kid believes he has the extra-ordinary power to bring his dad back from World War II. The kid makes “magic” shapes with his hands a lot. The words “miracle” and “courage” are used. Two sunsets are shown. (Side note: If I was making a gee-whiz inspirational movie about WWII, I wouldn’t call it “Little Boy,” which was the name of the A-bomb dropped on Hiroshima.)
Based on these 2:17 minutes, should you go? If there’s nothing new playing on the Hallmark Channel
