I was lucky to get a chance to watch this movie together with my son’s school.
And I could not stop crying in almost every part of the movie.
It’s about a boy with face deformity and his journey to face the ‘real world’ for the first time after being home schooled up to 4th grade.
It’s heart breaking. The real world is cruel, mean, and ruthless .
But it is also kind, loving , brave and strong.
You will experience misunderstanding, but you conquer with with compassion.
There are tears and there are joy.
Doing the right thing the wrong way, does not make it right.
There are so many things I learned from watching this movie, one of them is
Things we see, we think are not necessarily what they are
Please parents of middle-schoolers, or any grade, this is a must watch movie!
Saturday before Father’s Day 2017, we did not really have anything planned. Found a local summer festival in one of the neighbor hood park, so we thought we stopped by as it has a train display on this time.
We have been to this festival before, maybe 2 years ago. They have little kids rides, booths and fair type of foods – cotton candy, hotdogs, lemonade etc.
Back then I think A did a kiddie roller coaster and rolling on a giant ‘hamster’ ball.
This time he chose to ride on spinning rides where he went by himself.
I have to say, he is surely braver than me when it comes to rides. 😉
While we were about ready to go back to the car, an older man with a train engineer attire approached A. Turned out he was a magician. He performed many tricks with A. The old classic tricks, like the handkerchief, the disappearing coin and many more.
It’s kind of fun to watch A participate in the magic trick action – for free too!
In a paid magician performance, he may have to fight with other spectators to be on the stage to do such thing.
What a lucky kid!
I was able to record some of them, here are a couple of them. To view more videos, you can view them in Youtube.com :
