Secondhand Lions (Movie Review)
I saw this over the weekend on a friend’s DvD and enjoyed it. I believe it is available for live streaming several places as well.
A kid with a single mother gets ditched for the summer with some old great uncles and things ensue. This is an unusual story of living life by your own rules, and living it to the full. There are too many rifles for my taste, even though clay pidgins are all that are harmed by them. However, there are redeeming, universal messages of hope, love, and loyalty shared in an engaging way.
I missed this coming-of-age movie back in 2003 when it came out, but was glad to see it now. You may find it entertaining and heartwarming as well. I give it four stars.
