(**): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] The story has a good heart but the editing and execution of the the movie makes you frustrated while you're watching it. You want to like it but you just can't. Fair at best.

I work in a hospital so I love medical movies. This one is a true story about a young boy's life dealing with Marfan's Syndrome. Marfan's is a genetic condition that affects your connective tissue and usually other areas such as your eyes, heart, lungs, etc. Even though the disease limited Mo's physical life somewhat, he had many friends and was well accepted. I think this movie is very similar to Mask, only his family life was a little more ordinary.

Super Reviewer

Director Brian Lederman's film is about his little brother, and it's both as big-hearted and overly-close to the subject as you might expect.
