A feel-good coming-of-ager...

That's What I Am review

Adolescence is survived and life lessons learned in this coming-of-ager, which does nothing daring but manages to mobilise a straight-A cast to charm mildly.

Chase Ellison plays Andy, a sensitive 12-year-old forced by teacher Ed Harris to work with geek Alexander Walters, who everyone bullies.

With Harris oozing reserved authority, Molly Parker glowing with motherly goodness and Greg Kinnear providing a soothing voiceover, dissing it would be like nicking the school weakling’s lunch.

Funny fact: WWE made it. Big softies.
