Audience Reviews for I'll Remember April

Great heartwarming movie! It's a movie for the whole family to see! I don't see many kids play like that anymore. Not it is all video games and computers.

You gotta love old classic war films like this. I always enjoy war films that are told from the American heartland side.

this stars haley joel osment .A poignant coming of age story set in the wake of Pearl Harbor, just as the US is entering WWII, I'LL REMEMBER APRIL is the story of four young boys and their first experience with the paranoia and racism war bring about. These four ten year old boys find a Japanese sailor washed up on the California shore right after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and, hoping to become heroes, they take him prisoner this is a great movie a must see
