Little Manhattan


Borrowing some ideas from the TV classic series ''The Wonder Years'' (the director of this film worked on that series), this film looks at first love for a pair of pre-teens. Although they've known each other since kindergarten, they've never really taken an interest in one another. Things change when they both end up in the same karate class, as sparring partners. As they spend more time together, they realise that something is developing between them... and it's something they don't know how to handle... The film appears to have gone straight to Video/DVD overseas.

90 minutes.
