Grab a DVD copy of this film as soon as it becomes available. Metanoia Films produces this family film and is directed by Alejandro Monteverde.  I was fortunate enough to have worked with my good friend Alonso Alvarez Barreda on THE FINDING, a short film that Metanoia Films produced.  The film company has a strong producing and writing team with Leo Severino, Eduardo Verástegui, Pepe Portillo & Alejandro Monteverde.

LITTLE BOY has a stellar cast with Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson, Michael Rapaport, Kevin James and the young lead Jakob Salvati.  Jakob is amazing and he steals the show.   The film is about the capacity to love big, dream big, to forgive big and to do great things with your life. 

Here we are on location in Tampico, Mexico for THE FINDING discussing our scene. Alejandro is on the far right and Alonso is wearing the light blue cap.
