A Woody Allen-style New York romcom, only with eleven year-olds.

Shadows on the Wall

Nicely well-made, although it'll probably only appeal to young girls.

The freshness is authentic even when the whimsy grows hard to bear. The two leads are precocious in a way more typical of child actors than actual children.

As directed by Mark Levin, Little Manhattan is an endearing, affectionately humorous and even lyrical depiction of the dawning of adolescence amid the privileged.

Becomes something quite startling -- a sweet story about first love that manages to be a great date movie for adults, too.

it isn't about kids playing dress-up and talking like world-weary grown-ups. It's about knowing the right time to hold someone's hand

A beautiful, layered, uplifting, dizzyingly romantic motion picture. This is one of the year's very best films, and one of its most unexpected cinematic treasures.

Spending about 90 minutes with these two does eventually warm the heart, even if they're stuck in a paint-by-numbers plot.

A moderately charming comedy depicting a fumbling prepubescent first romance in a beautiful, fairy-tale version of the borough.

Reliving the roller-coaster ride of young love from the point of view of these phenomenal young actors offers a humorous escape from the adult world, where the little things in relationships are often taken for granted.

What a treasure -- a funny, tart, romantic comedy about tweens suffering the pangs of first love. It makes the cityscape an essential part of the romance, like a junior, vintage Woody Allen.

This small-scale, perfectly acted family film listens in on all the doubts and desires of an 11-year-old as he confronts new feelings about a girl he has known practically all his life.

It's the little things such as confusing voices on the phone that show you that the husband-wife team of director Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett are paying close attention to what kids do, say and go through.
