This movie had substance. If you want something that is mindless entertainment this is not it, but if you have a thoughtful adolescent, then this movie will entertain and provoke thought. It does a good job covering such things as friendship, secrets, adoption, making mistakes, and hanging in there to accomplish your hopes and dreams. Well done.

The ultimate feel-good movie

"Director/Producer Blair Treu and Writer Jessica Barondes have accomplished something very unique with their recent release Little Secrets. This movie, my vote for sleeper of the year, is hard to find but worth the search. Despite its low budget Little Secrets sports an enjoyable adult cast including 2 of my favorites: Tayva Patch and Rick Macy. But the real treat is the young cast. Three leading actors and about 10 supporting actors round out this youthful cast and make this movie a true delight. Their characters are entirely believable and entertaining. Evan Rachel Wood and Michael Angarano give some of the best performances from young actors that I have ever seen in a movie. Their interactions with each other are sheer magic. David Gallagher, while acting a slightly smaller and less interesting part also does a fine job.The basic premise of this movie centers around the main character, Emily, played by Wood. She is a young violinist anxious to join the symphony. As a side hobby she is a "secret keeper". All of the kids in her neighborhood come to her and share their secrets for 50 cents. And she never divulges a secret to anyone. When Phillip and David move into the neighborhood (Angarano and Gallagher respectively), Emily begins to experience a new set of emotions through a comical series of adventures that make her question, well, just about everything. Its all there: love, anger, confusion, the usual teen turmoil. So true was this to the adolescent mentality that I was taken back to my own youth. It was sheer enjoyment.Now, I must warn you. If you are the type who likes loud, vulgar movies with women running around in thongs with excessive James Bond-like action replete with explosions every 30 seconds and graphic violence and music that sounds like it was recorded in the depths of Hades, this is probably not the movie for you. You might be better off with something starring Vin Diesel. However, if you like a clean, moral, sensitive film that is funny and entertaining while encouraging profound introspection, go to Little Secrets. It might be hard to find, but it is well worth the effort. This is good cinema. I hope to see more films of this type in the future. Take the kids. Take the whole family!"

Depth , sensitivity & humor in a family movie

"This movie delighted even my husband - who does not do the kid flick thing. My children all loved it - age 6-10, though only the eight and up crowd understood all of the elements. What amazed the adults is that here was a charming movie of an unusual but believable over-achiever who simply profits by keeping secrets for other children. The characters we follow through the movie are entirely entertaining, although there were a few minor lapses in acting believability in some of the younger children in supporting roles.The movie keeps the audience interested and entertained from one element to another as the secret keeper's own secrets sensitively unfold. We considered this worth watching several times and that is not something we usually do.The drama of the story is not quite Oscar Material, maybe a 4.5 stars, but for a family movie, Mom and Dad will be pleasantly surprised and satisfied that it was money - and time - well spent. If you are looking for a stirring and entertaining movie for children age 8-100, this one should please everyone. I strongly recommend this purchase."
