My daughter plays the violin so she enjoyed Little Secrets. It was one of our favorites when the girls were younger. Good family film, great for tweens, especially girls.

For a person who does not exactly fit into the demographic for this movie nor likes that many kid flicks, I must say I thouroughly enjoyed this movie. The story is well-written and, taking into account the fact that this is a family movie, it is extremely well-acted. It tells the story of Emily and her neighborhood business of secret-keeper and her relization that keeping others' secrets (and hiding your own) is complicated. It also has charming subplots about first love, a new baby and determination, as well as the sorted secrets of all the kids in Emily's neighborhood Anyone who has seen either of the three principal actors in anything else will in my opinion be pleased with the movie and also find themselves feeling good after seeing it.

I love it when a movie comes along that entertains adults in the audience along with their kids. I thought the developing friendships and the strengthening family relationship were themes from which we could all learn and grow. Both the boys were adorable and Evan Rachel Wood was just fantastic. I loved the scenes where she interacted with her parents, who were wonderfully cast. In fact its interesting to note that the true life story of the woman who played the pregnant mother in the movie, Jan Broberg Felt, is written in a book available here on Amazon called Stolen Innocence: The Jan Broberg Story. It was a very interesting book and an amazing story.

Even Blair Treu's by-the-numbers-disney-channel style directing can't ruin Jessica Barondes delightful and insightful story about a talented and sensitive young girl learning the price of keeping secrets. The other big pluses in this movie are its stars, the sublime evan rachel wood and the appealing Michael Angarano, who I think are two of the best young actors around. Other reviews tell the story, I'm just letting adults know this is one to watch with your children. Maybe one day Ms. Barondes will hook up with a creative director who's willing to take some more chances -- until then this one is above average.

I LOVED this movie. Emily (Evan Rachel Wood) is a 14-year-old secret keeper during the summer. Kids pay just 50 cents to spill the truth to Emily, who they trust to keep their secrets. She locks their secrets in a box, never to unlock it and show to anyone else. Then she lets a secret slip. Will her clients who think she is trustworthy not believe her anymore? Find out! You HAVE to rent this movie (or even buy it!) It is a really touching story that keeps you interested the whole time. They have a great choice of cast as David Gallagher, Michael Angarano, Evan Rachel Wood, and Vivica A. Fox. We all know David Gallagher from the hit WB show 7th Heaven, where he plays stuck-in-the-middle brother Simon. I beg you...rent this!

If you're looking for a wonderful movie to watch with your kids, check out this one...it tells a very believable story with heart and integrity. Although it is probably geared towards females ages 7-12, it kept this adult riveted.
At the heart of the film is fourteen year old Emily (played by Rachel Wood) who is the neighborhood "secret keeper", charging a small fee so that the neighborhood children can unload their guilty consciences (and sometimes a broken item or two) with her. Unbeknownst to her young clients, however, Emily has her own secret, a huge one, which she has been hiding for years.
Meanwhile, complications ensue as Emily finds that secrets and lie have a way of growing more difficult to hide.
All of this unfolds in a very believable way. How refreshing to find a film that teaches solid values without heavy moralizing or preaching to its audience. I'm buying several copies to give as gifts because I think films like this deserve support..and, hopefully, more like this will be made. Highest recommendation for this one!
