Movie: Martian Child

If you want to see a touching movie, pick up the new DVD release of Martian Child.

A single man (played by John Cusack) decides he's ready to become a father. The social worker decides that a 7-year-old who thinks he's from Mars would be a perfect match; after all, the adoptive father-to-be is a science fiction writer. But not everyone is so sure. When his sister, a mother herself, learns about the match, her response is, "A kid who sits in a box all day is a GIANT RED FLAG."

Yet despite worries and frustrations that he might not be the best parent for this child, the father says,
"I don't want to bring another kid into this world...but how do you argue against loving one who's already here?"

If you watch the movie, don't miss the interview with the real father & son upon whom the movie is based. The love between the two is palpable.

Warning: if you haven't adopted already, this movie might just make you want to consider it.

Here's a link to the movie trailer.
