Rating: 8/10

I want to keep this brief because this movie should just be seen and experienced.

The performances are great from the entire cast, especially from co- writer and co-director Adam Nee as Tom Sawyer. The story is original,funny and unexpected while still playing homage to the classic tale in its own way.

The movie is shot beautifully and with style. Using bright colours and interesting props to really hold the tone.

I was lucky enough to catch this at CIFF and I'm excited to get a second viewing whenever it gets distribution.
