Little boy is a powerful and moving film about a little boy who is willing to do whatever it takes to bring his dad home from World War II alive. The story centers on a 7-year-old boy, Pepper Flynt Busbee, who is devastated when his father enlists in the army during World War II. It begins from the very moment he is born when his father cradles him in his arms and mentions how small he is. When Pepper is examined by a doctor the physician is asked if the child is a midget. However, the doctor says that the term is offensive and suggests that he is just a 'little boy.'
The audience at which Little Boy is aimed will have no problem assimilating the film's themes of faith and miracles. But there's also plenty to admire here for those less inclined to buy into the filmmakers' worldview.
It's meant to be a tale of uplift for faith-based audiences, but instead wears viewers down with a heavy-handed narrative, an overbearing score and voiceover that spells out everything in cringe-inducing, folksy tones.
