| Okay, not great.
The film is about a young boy's progression to accept the death of his father.

I had a hard time believing the depth of their relationship, but maybe that's just me. I also found the boy pretty darn annoying and difficult.

Good points: some nice photography; sustainable plot; some likeable characters; some charming moments.

Bad points: a little slow; acting mediocre; unoriginal story; at times a little too unbelievable and overdramatic.

To sum, so/so. Slight recommendation.
