Critic Reviews for Little Secrets
The kids in this syrupy family picture are spunky tykes and the adults are dolts, but Wood is worth watching because she's so clearly ready to play nobody's girl but her own.
There are a lot of movies out there made for fourteen-year-old boys, a ton of movies made for six-year-old kids, this movie is made for ten-year-old girls and for what it is, I really like it.
What you end up with are a bunch of kids acting not like kids, but how adults who've lost all sense of what it was like to be a kid think kids behave.
The movie's chipper charms, and its steadfast determination to present an alternative to overly merchandised multiplex fare (there's nary a pop song or product placement here), ultimately win out.
A touching film that will make audiences smile and cry at young characters who are learning about love and confession.
Audience Reviews for Little Secrets
A fourteen-year-old girl keeps the secrets of her neighborhood peers. This is a fantastic film for white people by white people (with a few token minorities) about white people's problems. Overall, you should watch this if you like Evan Rachel Wood and white people.
I've had the poster for this movie for years. Because of that, I thought this would be some dumb but fun kids film. NOPE! This is a character study of a 14 year old girl who apotheosizes secrets in order to suppress the ones she carries. There's no laughs to be found here. This is no dramedy, this is a flat out drama. For some, that twist might be a good thing. Not here. I was bored out of my mind for the majority of it. Angst... melodrama... I don't much care about those. So the cast... That "Sky High" kid was in this. Evan Rachel Wood is not yet a woman and looks quite weird in this given how used to Chiseled ERW I am. They were alright. Wood I guess was good, but given the source material, I can't give her credit b/c how apathetic I was to her.
This movie is a groundbreaking drama. It is a landmark as one of my favourite childhood films, and I wish it was even longer than 1 hour and 45 minutes! This movie released when I was 8 years old, and I cried back then, now I just look back on it as an amazing film.
