Brief Review - Martian Child

Finally saw Martian Child, starring John Cusack and Bobby Coleman as the adoptive father and son. It came out with little fanfare, didn't stay long in local theaters, and I read only one or two reviews about it, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm glad I picked up a used copy of the DVD--and for a mere $5.

It's about a boy named Dennis who claims to be from Mars, and about the widowed science fiction writer who adopts him. It's a quiet, sideways little film about family, love, and acceptance. And science fiction in many forms. Highly recommended.
