age 10+

Very funny movie, and a great coming of age story. The main characters growth juxtaposed against the silly humor of Jack Black and others is a wonderful combination.

This film is funny, but underneath the real story is about dealing with loss, accepting who you are, seeing beauty and value in people whom the main character had disdain for. It's a true coming of age story.
