Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Stars ììì

Little Boy presents the interesting concept that invisible forces can coalesce to make the impossible come true if the person wishing possesses a pure, loving heart. The story invokes the phrase, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move” and uses a boy named Pepper Flynt Busbee (played by Jakob Salveti) to illustrate a process of steps that lead to impossible events leaping from imagination into reality. The movie works through its realistic portrayal of American life in a small coastal town along the California coast during WWII, the hatred of some Americans for Americans of Japanese heritage, and reliance upon religious teachers during times of trouble for advice and comfort to make an average film.
