Told from the perspective of soon to be 11 year old Gabe – he falls in love with schoolmate, Rosemary, at the same time as his parents are negotiating a divorce. He and Rosemary practice karate together, but the looming summer holidays will have them go their separate ways. Gabe quickly learns about the pain of love and having a broken heart.
Pooh bah – I’m not much of a fan of 11 year olds dating and being in love, or for gender roles to start being entrenched so young. My kids are not interested in seeing this type of film (yuck kissing!) so I suppose it’s for parents to watch and try to understand their kids. Not much of a drawcard for me, but nonetheless, it’s a New York love story and some of you may like to watch it as a family.
