Quick Review

Fantastic movie, which hits just the right note and captures a specific atmosphere. A group of 10-year old friends on an adventure grow up along the way. Some of them at least.

Excellent performances all around by a very young cast, lift the movie and by the end the melancholy is thick enough to be felt.
