    Adorable, down-to-earth, and spiritually in-depth. There's more to this film than what you may have heard.

    no, the sixth sence wasent m night shyamalans debut film, this was from 2 years before, a average and a bit dull tale of a young kid growing up, none of the imagination, and suspence, or indeed child acting, seen in the sixth sence, but a okay kids film,

    Shyamalan's 1st commercial film is certainly one worth watching. This film focuses on a 5th-grader's journey to find god following his grandfather's passing, and his year-long adventures leading up to his final revelation. I'm not a believer in god, but this film is very heart-warming. Joseph Cross is an amazing actor at such a young age. Leary, Loggia, Stiles, Delaney and Reifsnyder provide great supporting roles which do not subtract from the film's charm. O'Donnell fits well in this film. Unlike the real world, Shyamalan's film is non-abusive in its faithful message of enlightenment. The plot is easy to understand, and does not steer the audience with dogmatic tension or fear.
