Martian Child is a film about being a kid. Feelings of insecurity, belonging and home are explored through a young orphan who tells people he's from Mars. A well done, sweet story based on a boy's true adoption story. I think a lot of people can relate to this story. At some point in our lives, we all seem to feel we don't belong. I highly recommend the "making of" segments, on the Special Features of the DVD. Interesting insight to making the film and the real story of the man who adopted the "Martian Child" and wrote about him in a short story.
