This is a heartwarming film with an inspiring story and nice lessons about accomplishing your dreams. The film centers on J.J. House, an 11-year-old boy who lives with his adoptive parents in Mount Vernon, Ohio. J.J. has brittle bone disease, loves the theatre and decides he wants to direct a play. He and a group of kids come together and work on a musical production based of the picture book How I Became a Pirate. The film follows J.J. and his crew and their journey to opening night. My favorite character in this film is J.J. He's funny and has a lot of charisma for an 11-year-old. He's also wise beyond his years and never lets anything get in the way of his goals. The lesson I learned from this film is that you should never let anything stop you from accomplishing your dreams. If you have dreams (which basically everyone does), you should always work to achieve them. Never let anything or anyone stop you from doing that. It has pretty good production values. The story flows well and it addresses a topic that probably not many are aware of. I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 9 to 16. Reviewed by Benjamin P., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
