Reviews

Romantic comedy starring Josh Hutcherson as Gabe, an 11-year-old boy living on the more exclusive side of New York City. His parents, Adam (Bradley Whitford) and Leslie (Cynthia Nixon), are splitting up, and as their marriage slowly crumbles, they've both become increasingly protective of their son. Meanwhile, Gabe finds his head turned by Rosemary (Charlie Ray), a cute girl in his karate class. He works up the nerve to ask Rosemary out on a date, and in time the two begin spending their spare time together. But just when Gabe feels ready to tackle the next step and tell Rosemary that he's in love with her, he learns that she'll be spending the summer away at camp, meaning he'll have to spend his vacation pining for her. As Gabe turns to Adam for advice, Adam begins taking another look at where his relationship with Leslie went sour.

When i first told my mom about this film in the summer of 2006, i was totally adament that once it was out in the UK i would get it. Since then i had forgotten all about it! And if i hadn't gone into our local video store a few days ago, i still wouldn't have remembered it; But boy, am i glad i found it.
I watched it and found it completley wonderful!
It was so well done and very observed about love!
when Gabe starts a karate lesson he becomes friends with Rosemary Telesco, who hes known since kindergarten. They get on famously, and Gabe completley falls for her. But she is going to camp in a week for 6 weeks, and Gabe feels like his heart has been ripped out. It shows him getting jealous, cranky, and feeling very insecure, and experiences the true feeling of love.
This Movie has a great storyline, and the music is beautiful.
Its very well cast and i can't stop watching it! A must for everybody! =D
And the tagline is also very true: Nothings as big as your first love!

Format: DVD
Probably the sweetest motion picture of 2006 and definitely the best family-targeted movie of last year, "Little Manhattan" is a lovel little romantic comedy for pre-teens and older audiences who are children at heart. Switching masterfully between broad comedy, beautiful first love story, intense drama and reminding audiences of television show "The Wonder Years", which director Mark Levin was a co-director on, "Little Manhattan" qualifies as one of the most enchanting pictures of the year. That trash like 2005's "Cheaper by the Dozen 2", 2006's "Eight Below" and 2007's "Material Girls" can offer half-baked romances as sub-plots while the joyous "Little Manhattan" offers one of more realism and honesty is slightly sickening. That they have all achieved more viewers than this little gem is more than slightly sickening, it's a disgrace. Truth be told, this is one of the best family releases of recent times.

Gabe (Josh Hutcherson) is a carefree pre-teen boy who enjoys hanging out with his guy friends on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and detests any contact with the opposite sex, who he sees as the most icky things in existance. That all changes, however, when he starts taking karate lessons and teams up with Rosemary (Charlie Ray), a girl he has known all his life but ignored since first-grade because of the male/female divide that rapidly appeared during that time. As Rosemary and Gabe's friendship grows, Gabe is taken aback when he starts discovering feelings that he never knew existed. Far from loathing his female partner, he begins to fall in love with her.

By putting a child performer front and centre throughout, director Mark Levin's "Little Manhattan" is reliant on Josh Hutcherson's performance. Lucky then, that Hutcherson is the best child actor working today.

I absolutely LOVED this very atypical but extremely beautiful romantic comedy. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Gabe Burton (Josh Hutcherson) is almost eleven and lives in Manhattan with his soon-to-be-divorced parents. He always thought that his life, albeit far from perfect, was not so bad after all - but then, very recently, he met an old acquaintance of his, Rosemary Telesco (Charlie Ray) a girl couple of months older than him, whom he lost from sight since they were together in the kindergarten. And at that moment, his life all of a sudden became much, much more interesting, complicated and painful - because he fell victim to this wonderfully cruel life event, which has for name THE FIRST LOVE...

I will not say anything more here about the plot - let's just say that the scenario is brilliant, very intelligent and without one weakness. Telling a story about love between two 11-years old children, a love driven entirely and exclusively by beating of two hearts, without hormones and pheromones having yet anything to say, is a very delicate, even perilous exercice - but the scenario accomplishes its routine at a 10-note level from all the judges and avoids all the snares and booby traps (pun very much intentional...). Be however aware, that it is a bittersweet treat - because the first love is usually a very pure, beautiful, delicious but also a most cruel thing...

This film, although some adults obviously appear in it too, is carried almost totally by the two child actors.

Charlie Ray (whose real name is Charlotte Ray Rosenberg) was at that time 13 and she did a great job, in what was her first - and as it turned also the last, at least as of July 2013 - appearance on the silver screen.

10 year old Manhattan resident Gabe (Josh Hutcherson) finds his first love when he meets his former kindergarten mate, the eleven year old Rosemary (Charlie Ray), in his karate classes. Confused with his new feelings and with the divorce process of his beloved parents, Leslie (Cynthia Nixon) and Adam (Bradley Whitford), he experiences the delightful unknown sensation of being in love for the first time. We see this story through his eyes
`Little Manhattan' is one of these films that could easily pass you by because it's not a film that's attracted a lot of attention. It is simply told, the setting seems superb and what might have seemed a strange kind of story has an unexpected and cheerful resolution. It is a delightful film in every way and the acting, dialogue and storytelling is a thing to treasure. It's also a wonderful family oriented film, which is a rarity in these times.
If you watch this, you will have moments of delight and have scenes that you will talk about and love sharing with others. You will not be disappointed by this film. The child actors set the tone just right and the whole way the film is presented is perfect.
