  Little Manhattan

Love Story, the 1970 tearjerker starring Ali McGraw and Ryan O’Neal left me cold. Its famous tagline, “Love means never having to say you’re sorry,” has irritated and confounded me to no end for these thirty-six years. If there is no “I’m sorry” spoken, then when will the “I forgive you be heard”?

Here’s a new movie to set things straight, Little Manhattan. There are no big time stars, and no illicit romances to draw fawning fans to ask for this little film. It has nothing more to offer than a simple tale of a young boy’s first-time love.

I won’t spoil the rest, but Little Manhattan is truly love put into practice. Gather the family and a bowl of popcorn — and look for those catechetical moments. Here is a wholesome movie done well.

Can I suggest a Christian novel for your consideration to review? "Outcasts of Skagaray" by Andrew Clarke is a Christian fantasy adventure, written about the undervalued and mistreated people of the world. It deals with serious issues but has a positive outcome, not merely a cheesy 'happy ending' because Christians can believe in good outcomes. Your opinion would be respected.
