    A REAL GEM !

    This exquisite movie is based on the autobiography of Sir Denis Forman (''Son of Adam''.) It has a superb cast, especically the title role of 10-year ''Fraser'' played by Robbie Norman. He is so adorable! Colin Firth, as Fraser's father Edward Pettigrew, is in his top form. Firth is such an amazing actor - he can envoy such intensity of emotion with his eyes. As in his protrayals of ''Mr. Darcy'' in ''Pride & Prejudice,'' and in his much earlier film, ''A Month in the Country,'' his restraint and surpassed emotions come across with such impact. It seems that the less he has to say, the better. (However, one could listen to his deep, posh voice all day long!)There is a slight error in the ALL MOVIE REVIEW above as supplied by Barnes & Noble. The Pettigrew family consisted of 10 children, not two. Fraser and Elspeth were the focus.

    A Jewel of a Film!

    I loved this film. It was a lovely surprise as only the British can do. A period piece and based on a true story, the casting, acting, and directing are superb. Your heart goes out to the young Fraiser. Lastly, if you love music from Scotland, like me, you will adore this film.
