Katherine Paterson's Newberry Award-winning children's book comes to life. Josh Hutcherson (Zathura) plays Jesse, a poor middle school kid who's ignored at home and bullied at school. He finds his one true friend in fellow outsider Leslie (AnnaSophia Robb, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). He's an aspiring artist, she loves telling stories. Together, they retreat into their own little fantasy world. Although the commercials make this look like a third-rate Chronicles of Narnia, it's actually a well thought-out coming-of-age tale, not so far removed from Stand By Me or My Girl.95 minutes PG.
