Movie Reviews

A real message made kid friendly...
Jeffrey Natalie, LSW | Erie, Pennsylvania, USA | 09/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Trevor Romain and the Comical Sense Company score a home-run with this children's video on divorce. In an area where visual resources for children-of-divorce is lacking, this movie not only takes on the challenge of filling a void, but creates a resource for children, families and schools that has a high "usability" factor (Trevor has included a resource guide that is worth the price of the dvd alone).

The characters of Skye and Jack lend a sense of safety through familiarity and approachability. These characters could very well be any child you know. Trevor brings out the vulnerabilities of divorce in a careful but realistic way. He hasn't shied away from the fact that it is perhaps the second most difficult issue for a child to endure, next to the loss of a parent. This is not a watered down, "cutesy" movie...as a therapist I was moved by the reality of pain that Trevor was able to capture.

Finally, Trevor depicts Skye's pursuit of finding peace over her parent's divorce in the most creative and cognitively accurate way...I won't spoil it for you. It alone was worth the price of admission.

No divorce is easy, no divorcing parent should believe that a conversation with their child about it will be either. Trevor offers a tool that can help bridge the gap. This movie will not replace healthy post-divorce parent-child interaction/involvement ...in fact, Trevor's gem is just the beginning of the conversation.

A must have for anyone directly involved in the care of children-of-divorce.

"I have other Trevor Romain videos. This is a good tool to explain the basic information about a divorce, as well as it can open a conversation about how the children may feel. It is geared for younger children, I would say between 5-10 yrs."
