Martian Child ()

directed by
featuring John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Sophie Okonedo, Oliver Platt, Bobby Coleman

Adapted from a Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novelette by author David Gerrold, Menno Meyjes's Martian Child stars John Cusack as a widowed science fiction writer who adopts a boy (Bobby Coleman) who claims to be from the Red Planet. The writer believes the child acts strangely in order to process the difficulty he has had in his young life, but soon both he and his sister (Joan Cusack) begin to wonder if the boy might be telling the truth. Amanda Peet co-stars as the woman who becomes a mother figure for the boy. Perry Seibert, Rovi Hide synopsis

You're my satellite

by KareninsSmile on May 1, 2009

Thus is a cute little film. It's quite sweet and heartwarming. It's obviously not for everyone and not quite up to Cusack's usual staandards. But, I like it. It has charm and it's comforting and nice. Cusack's character has lost his wife and ends up adopting a very troubled little boy who thinks that he is here on Earth on a mission from Mars. The two are damaged individuals who gradually learn to love again. It'slovely for a quiet night in.
