Whoa, I just watched this movie tonight. For some reason the title "Little Children" seemed profound to me. My intuition was right. It speaks of how the cycle of adults' selfish desires affect children - and how this neglect of children so often leads to them being victimized, vulnerable to abuse later, how the cycle keeps going unless families start staying together with a mom AND dad to protect their young who will become the adults with their most basic needs met (affirmation, unconditional love, self-esteem, praise, time spent with the kids so they believe they are "worthy", etc). Excellent movie, hardhitting and realistic and sometimes hard to watch (I had to pause several times just to gather my thoughts) but the ENDING is everything I thought it would be and hoped for. It speaks to how the cycle CAN be broken, and how doing the right thing is never impossible and is even ultimately the most attractive thing to do, and WHY (to protect precious lives from being emotionally vulnerable to harm). It is a snapshot of "the big picture" which is sometimes hard to see from one's own selfish subjective viewpoint in life.

I want to add though that there are some pretty disturbing scenes and might be triggering for some survivors, but if you can make it to the end, the message is awesome.

That"s a good one indeed. For those of you who are interested, we have this one in the MS Bookstore.

Much love,
