Little Boy is a powerful and moving film about a little boy who is willing to do whatever it takes to bring his dad home from World War II alive. The heartwarming story will capture your heart and lift your spirits as it reveals the indescribable love a little boy has for his father and the love a father has for his son. Set in the 1940s, LITTLE BOY is an instant cinematic classic that captures the wonder of life through the eyes of a 7-year-old little boy. Written and directed by Smithsonian Institute Award winning director Alejandro Monteverde, LITTLE BOY highlights themes of faith, hope and love in the face of adversity.
Little Boy is heartfelt movie that will make you question how pure is your faith and hope, as we see Peppers childlike faith throughout the film. “I believe I can do this” is what his dad taught him as they played out their imaginary stories, and that nothing is impossible. Mr.Busby is sent off to war, leaving Pepper with his mom and older brother London, who was rejected from the army for having flat feet. Hashimoto, a Japanese town resident who has been ostracized by the community, is befriended by Pepper as part of his “spiritual journey” and suggested by the priest Father Oliver When Pepper asks, “How can I get bigger faith?” The town is shaken by an earthquake, believed to have happened when London challenges Pepper to “move a mountain” from then on Pepper uses all his faith to bring his dad home by extending his hands towards the sun in the pacific to stop the war. There are many funny and heartfelt scenes throughout the film, that can be great conversational and teachable moments for the family.
