Sweet little film about a young Scottish boy growing up in his family castle with an assortment of wacky relatives. From his straight-laced inventor father (), to his loving mother (a very beautiful ), this young man is also surrounded by a free-spirited uncle () who has brought his beautiful French mistress () for a visit, upsetting the calm of the family and turning heads wherever they go. Jacob is perfectly lovely as the puberty ignition for the little guy, and their relationship together is cherishable and charming. There’s nothing really bad to say about the film, but there’s nothing to point out about it that holds it anywhere above all other films of the sort. Watch it if only for one of the rare opportunities to see the magnificent on screen.
