Movie Review: Little Boy

I love learning about movies that the whole family can enjoy. I am excited to share about Little Boy, a family-friendly movie that was just released on DVD a couple days ago. You have probably heard the saying, “having the faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains.” Little Boy pulls inspiration from this quote to make an amazing film.

Little Boy follows the story of Pepper Busbee and his father during the time of World War 2. I blame the hormones, but right off the bat I was teary eyed as the relationship between Pepper and his dad reminded me of my son and my husband. The love between a father and son is something so inspiring and I love how the movie captured this! 

Pepper’s dad was unfortunately sent to war and while Pepper eagerly waits for his return, he has quite a few adventures on his own. He learns some valuable life lessons, such as strengthening his faith in God and loving those who seem to be unlovable. “How can I get bigger faith?” Pepper asks his priest, in hopes to get his father to return. The priest gives him a list of things for him to do in order to make his faith powerful.

This movie really spoke volumes to me. In a world where bullying and hate can be a norm (then and even now), it’s hard to practice unconditional love. Pepper really had to swallow his pride and extend friendship to those who hurt him. At a young age of 7, Pepper not only learned about love and respect, he learned a great lesson in humility. Little Boy was definitely a tear jerker from start to finish, and this movie will surely be a blessing to the whole family. You can find it now on DVD and Blu-Ray at a store near you!
