A seven year old Bryce (Callan McAuliffe) moves to a new neighbourhood across the street from a very spirited little girl named Juli (Madeline Carroll). She falls in love at first sight much to the dismay of the shy young lad. For the next six years, Juli overwhelms Bryce with her affections until a series of events and misunderstandings leaves her heartbroken and angry at him. Fed up, Juli begins to ignore him. However, her absence triggers a change of heart as Bryce realizes his fondness of her. He will do anything to win her back. The whole film, set in the late fifties holds the warmth and charm of small town living. With a balance of passion and playfulness, the extraordinary young cast are brilliant in their roles. Based on the novel by Wendelin Van Draanen, this endearing story of young puppy love, will make your heart melt!
A great take on young love and its challenges with an amazing old school soundtrack! It is obvious this movie is an adaptation from a novel, dialogues are beautiful and the structure of the scenario is really clever. It is a no-brainer, perfect Sunday movie 🙂
Saw this about a year ago it’s awesome! It’s about two kids whose opinions flip, it’s truly amazing.
