Description Natasha is a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. She is not the type of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when her family is twelve hours away from being deported. Falling in love with him will not be her story. Daniel has always been the good son, the good student, living up to his parents' high expectations. Never a poet. Or a dreamer. But when he sees her, he forgets all that. Something about Natasha makes him think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store - for both of them. Every moment has brought them to this single moment. A million futures lie before them. Which one will come true?

This movie is based on the book of the same name by William Kilpatrick. The movie centers around James Jameson (John Goodman) and his young son Tyler Jameson (Adam Brody) who is a star pitcher at his high school. However, the stakes of the game are not high, as both of their lives are on the line. Both Jameson's parents, as well as the family as a whole, are torn apart. Tyler finds out that his father loves a woman that he just met, but is not willing to marry her. While Jameson is about to inherit the family's winnings, the local home and studio is about to be sold. At the end of the day, Tyler's family is unhappy with their son, as he continues to be the "cool" member of the family. The film was beautifully directed by David Gordon Green. He did a wonderful job of depicting the transition of the older son's mental and emotional maturity as well as the transition of Jameson. In one of the first scenes, we see Jameson as a teen. We know that he is highly intelligent and does not seem to fit in with the other boys in his school. However, he seems to have developed an inner life as a mature young man that helps him overcome his intellectual struggles. The idea of a "kid's movie" is not a new one, and it is usually associated with children, usually animated or made for children. However, I thought this movie was very much a family movie as well. In the beginning, we see Jameson and his sister Stephanie (Natasha Lyonne) in a house. The father is not seen, and it is an indirect, yet very important scene. This is a very good scene because it establishes the family dynamic of the boy's life, the father and his son, and the family dynamic of the family. When Jameson's father and Tyler find out about the big sale that is about to happen, we see a scene where Jameson is asked by Stephanie to go to the game and pitch. However, instead, he goes to a movie where Tyler is sitting next to him, and they are watching a movie on the big screen. The scene is set up to show how Jameson is still an adolescent, and not as mature as Tyler. This scene is a great metaphor for how Jameson is able to manage his emotional development. We then see the transition from the high school life of the "cool" Tyler, to the home and studio life of the "curious" Jameson. The transition of both families is beautifully depicted. The setting of the film is obviously in LA. However, the movie is very much about the overall climate in which they live. Jameson's family lives in a large town where the neighbor's parents are divorced, and the son's father is unemployed. However, Tyler's parents are parents of a great deal of money and are not struggling. Tyler lives in a big, but quiet home, and his father is in a golf club, which is a very large, but quiet home. The movie does not shy away from depicting the relative poverty that is prevalent in the LA neighborhood, and how Tyler has to struggle to maintain his home and his small restaurant. Also, the movie is very much about Tyler's struggle to find his own self and his family, and the greater good in the world.
