Just as the New York radio journalist Johnny is about to embark on a research trip across the USA to quiz kids for a major feature about their expectations for the future, his sister asks him to take care of her nine-year-old son Jesse for a while. Johnny decides to take the boy along on the trip. Director and script writer Mike Mills has achieved something truly great. He moves us without resorting to kitsch, presents a nine-year-old child actor on a par with a star like Joaquin Phoenix and tackles issues of friendship, family and responsibility in a manner that lets you leave the cinema inspired.
