Child performances are seldom mediocre, particularly in dramas. Dramas tend to demand an emotional range that children typically cannot produce predictably (so the story goes).
This list covers films (mostly drama, but a few dramatic comedies) that are either entirely carried by a child actor, driven carefully by a cast of young actors, and the occasional movie where the child is an equal part of an impressive ensemble. Many of the movies will link to reviews I have posted here; however I list movies that I adore but either have not yet, or will not review in full.
All will have comments or quick tips and many will have questions ... What good is using an opinion networking site that doesn't open the way for sharing?
