WOW! This kid Zain is not good; he's great, he's super. He did such a good job in this movie, and yes I enjoyed every second of it. Even though he is a kid in this movie, his parents and others forced him to act like an adult, which they later regret. And although he had hatred for those who abused him emotionally, he still had a heart of gold as evidenced by his babysitting, not realizing the mother was in jail. A large part of this movie was caring for this toddler child with no money and other essentials. And lastly I enjoyed that cute smile of his that ended the movie.
