Format: DVD
John Cusack, typed cast into a writer's role (1408, The Raven) plays David, a successful science fiction author. We get to know about his abnormal childhood of make believe from the opening radio interview. He is a widower, owns an old dog, has one sister (Joan Cusack) and Harlee (Amanda Peet) a helpful female friend. His next book will be "The Revenge of Draco Ban" even though he killed off all the main characters.

David is kicking around the ideal of adopting a child. He is encouraged by Harlee, and discouraged by his sister who calls her children "Omen 1 and Omen 2." Sophie (Sophie Okonedo), who works at the adoption agency matches David up with Dennis (Bobby Coleman), a boy who spends his time in a cardboard box and believes he is from Mars. The film takes on a "K-Pax" feel for awhile, as the boy is sometimes very convincing.

The movie is a feel good family drama with the right amount of humor, drama, and conflict. If you are like me and cry at movies, don't forget your Puffs.

An all time favourite - worth watching on a snowy night by the fire. A science fiction writer saddened by the death of his wife, adopts a little boy who believes he is a Martian. They teach each other about "how to be in this world" while retaining one's own uniqueness. The acting is superb - especially for John Cusack fans (who isn't a John Cusack fan?). Joan Cusack rounds out this perfect little movie.

The movie is nothing I would have ever expected. You will laugh and cry and also be overwelmed. Great adoption story and I enjoy watching it over and over. You really get to see into a child thoughts and see how the cope with things that happen to them. No regrets at all

I thought this movie was great. My minister made reference to it in her sermon and I thought it sounded interesting. After watching it, I looked at the special features, finding out it was based on a real person made it even better. It's great for families.
