Letters to God

Those in search of teary-eyed Christian uplift will find it in this micro-budget family drama inspired (of course) by a true story. A cancer-stricken 8-year-old boy (Tanner Maguire) pens letters to God, inspiring a beleaguered postman (Jeffrey S.S. Johnson) to turn his life around. This is a coup, at least for Maguire, who up until now has been relegated to playing preteen, flashback-episode versions of recurring TV characters (young Tom on "Lost," young Barney on "How I Met Your Mother," young Grandpa Shawn on "Days of Our Lives," young John on "Without a Trace," young Zach on "Desperate Housewives" and young Ralph on "My Name is Earl.") 110 minutes PG.
