I Am David

Jack Fowler writes in National Review:

For those yearning for a movie, any movie, which, if only as a mere courtesy, won’t offend. For those who thought Hollywood could not make a film touching on religion without disdain or disparagement for faith or institution. For those who wonder why the industry that can make a motion picture about anything can’t seem to make one that portrays, in any honesty, Communist tyranny. For those and all others who simply desire to go to a clean family movie, a wonderful movie, a beautiful movie, a movie with meaning, with depth, with lessons, take heart — I Am David opens in theaters on December 3.

It's interesting to note that Walden Media is behind the movie. They are the folks behind the movies like "Holes," "Chronicles of Narnia" (forthcoming), "The Question of God" (Freud and Lewis), and The Giver (forthcoming).
