Adapted from a true story, Martian Child deals with the loss of family, love and finding ourselves in this universe. Who are we? Where do we belong. Excellent movie showing the struggles of adjustment for an abandoned child who finds comfort in being a person from another plant.

As usual John is a great actor especially when acting with a child.

I would like to give you another point of view. My husband and I are in the process of adopting, more specifically the age range of the little boy in the movie. We have recently completed our classes and to be honest the movie was dead on in the events that happened. These kids and there are thousands across the US, have been abandoned, mistreated, etc and each and every one of them feels it's

The problem with Martian Child is that it wants to be a story about outcasts, but Dennis doesn't come off as a cute little rebel. Full Review

Martian Child would like to be "About a Boy (Who Thinks He's a Martian)", but, disappointingly, it doesn't even come close. Full Review

An occasionally schmaltzy but likable story of healing and redemption. Full Review

In drama, and just about everything else, almost is never enough. Which is why Martian Child, about the growing bond between an adult and child, never reaches us. Full Review
