Martian Child


USA 2007, 107 minutes
Dir. Menno Meyjes
Rating: [M]
Genres: Science Fiction, Comedy, Family


Aroview: Nicely judged performances from a quality cast lend weight to this rather feathery, maudlin tale of a lonely sci-fi author who adopts an orphaned boy who believes he's from Mars.

Although the script is given to moments of artless unsubtlety and unnecessarily pious espousals of the marvels of parenting, audiences – esp. misfits and outcasts - will relish the film's generosity of spirit towards the plight of oddballs and loners.
