I am 12 years old and this is again one of my favourite movies. I love how as the film develops, you can see how the boy (protagonist) thinks, the build up and structure displayed here is impressive. At the beginning you have chosen sides already and have decided who you think is right about which direction the child (Fred) should go in life ( either the mother or the head of the school for the gifted). Jodie Foster has once again proven herself to be a great, talented actor and this movie is highly recommended. Mainly for the mature kids.
Hope this helped.
