"The Martian Child"

Comedy, Drama, Science Fiction/Fantasy and Adaptation. Rated PG.

by Jessica Guastello
lulu19237@aol.com

Discover a world of a small boy whose universe collides with a very special family in the film, Martian Child. John Cusack stars in this inspirational and emotional journey about David, a recently widowed science fiction writer (John Cusack , High Fidelity), who forms an unlikely family with a close friend (Amanda Peet, The Whole Ten Yards, Something’s Gotta Give) and wants to adopt a fragile young boy (Bobby Coleman; Friends With Money, Must Love Dogs) who believes he’s from Mars. Realizing that they both can relate to one another, David accepts the child’s differences and emotional needs and the two learn how to open their hearts and love again.

I very much enjoyed this uplifting film about two people with broken hearts that go on a journey to find one another. Martian Child is truly an inspirational film that the whole family can relate to and enjoy.

OVERALL GRADE: B+

 

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH BOBBY COLEMAN

I’ve recently had the pleasure of interviewing one of the stars of the Martian Child, Bobby Coleman, who plays Dennis in the film.

Q: What was it like playing an orphan in this movie?

A: It was really hard to relate to.

Q: How did you prepare for the role?

A: My family and I all gathered around once I got the script and wondered how it would feel to be an orphan, and what it would be like not to be loved. Once Dennis found someone to love him, like David, then he was able to be himself and stop imagining he was from Mars. Dennis excluded himself because he wasn’t like other kids.

Q: Seeing that you have been in other films, what is it about Martian Child that you enjoyed?

A: I really loved working with John, because he’s such a great person. He came up to me when we first started shooting and told me he wanted to gradually get to know me better, so when we shot the scenes our friendship would feel and look real.

Q: What was it like working with the Cusack brother and sister team?

A: It was so cool, because Joan always has a smile on her face. She has two sons that always came to the set that I would hang out with. I always have nice things to say about John and Joan because their such kind people.

Q: Regarding your character in the movie is there anything you can relate with?

A: One scene in the movie where Dennis is in the back yard of David’s house exploring all the insects, plants and trees. That’s definitely something I’m very interested in. I related to Dennis a lot because we both love space, and he’s always curious about his environment just like I am.

Q: What do you think this story says about kids who have trouble “fitting in“?

A: This movie can help kids by learning it’s ok to be themselves even if other kids in school think their weird. No child should be picked on in school and I think Dennis is a great example of someone whose not afraid.

Q: What kind of movies do you like to watch?

A: Favorite movie of all time is I Am Legend, starring Will Smith. I really enjoy watching the Nickelodeon shows as well, my favorite is Sponge Bob.
