Produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, Little Boy is not the type of movie I would typically pay to see, but one I would probably sob all the way through while watching alone on HBO. The film tells the story of a 7-year-old boy named Pepper Flynt Busbee (Salvati) and his best friend – his father (Rapaport). For years, the two have embarked on wild, imaginary adventures together, until Mr. Busbee is drafted to fight in World War II. Devastated by his father’s departure, Pepper believes it is up to him (and the power of his mind) to end the war and bring his best friend home.



Release date: April 24
Director: Lee Toland Krieger
Cast: Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman, Harrison Ford, Ellen Burstyn

In 1935, 27-year-old Adaline Bowman (Lively) crashes her car into a lake and, as luck would have it, she is struck by lightning whilst trapped in said car in said lake. Sounds like someone’s got a case of the Mondays! Eighty years after the accident, Adaline has not aged a day, and lives a lonely life with her now-elderly daughter (Burstyn). When Adaline finally meets a man worth growing old with (Huisman), she realizes she once had a relationship with his father (Ford) and that he could spill her ridiculous secret. Shockingly, this is not based on a book by Nicholas Sparks.
