Movie Info

In the debut film from director Mary Agnes Donoghue, Elijah Wood plays ten-year-old Willard Young, who is sent off to spend the summer in the small town of Paradise with his mother's friends Ben and Lily Reed (Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith). The Reeds' own son has recently died in an accident, leaving the couple shell-shocked and non-communicative; it's up to Willard to help them learn to live again.
