What a wonderful surprise this movie is. It looks like a mawkish family drama about a young boy who overcomes a genetic abnormality and finds some happiness in the world. But it ends up being genuinely moving, thanks to strong performances from Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson and (mostly) understated direction from Stephen Chbosky. You’ll shed a few tears — especially if you’re a parent — and they’ll be earned. My RogerEbert.com review.
