The Little Red Wagon is a sweet, feel-good movie about Zach Bonner, an 8-year old boy who walks 280 miles to raise awareness about homeless children in the wake of Hurricane Charley. But not only does this movie show the inspiring, happy picture of a little boy following his dream, it also follows another family through their poverty and eventual homelessness, reminding the viewer of how each person on the street has a history that led them there.
I heard a sermon last Sunday about how Jesus "went about doing good." The pastor challenged us to counter evil by doing good in the world around us. Even though there is no explicit Christian message in this movie, the message to love the poor and needy (which is what Jesus did) is very clear.
I absolutely LOVED the characters in this movie. The actor chosen for Zach's role was completely charming - I could watch so much more of him! Also, the conversations and relationships between Zach, his sister and his mom were so realistic, I felt like I was watching a real family as they got pulled along by Zach's huge vision. Also, the true story behind the movie is absolutely incredible.
