    Seriously one of my favorite films of all time. Patricia Clarkson and Elle Fanning are amazing on they're own, and together they're unstoppable. Great acting, great plot, great message, great film

    Director Daniel Barnz produces an enjoyable film that reminds us that imagination is a precious commodity which adults need to nurture by allowing kids to jump.

    The mesmerizing performance of Fanning as the gifted and troubled young Phoebe sparks the picture.

    Partly produced by Lifetime, the pic attempts to elevate the disease-of-the-week movie into a moral dialectic between conformity and imagination.
