      Suppose you were a kid in foster care who suddenly realized that kids like you were an expendable part of the system. You know you have a mother somewhere who you believe wants you back but in the mean time you cannot put down roots for fear of never finding her. Gilly is a very smart kid who has been maybe a little too successful at never remaining in a foster home too long. Keep moving and maybe you'll find your mother. Gilly lands in a new foster home and immediately begins her emotional and physical exit, doing everything in her power to be sent away to someplace new. However, this time, she encounters a loving, understanding and concerned foster mother, as well as a teacher who is her match in every way. Gilly tries all her proven tactics but encounters love and understanding at every turn. It is then that she tries a new, unproven tactic that may just be her youthful undoing. The Great Gilly Hopkins has a terrific, award-winning cast of supporting characters and more than enough emotion for most viewers. Gilly's strength and cunning are proof of the journey she is taking.

      This Movie should have had wider distribution, I guess there weren't enough explosions and CGI. Excellent cast, great script, based on a fantastic story. Great movie for adults and teens, but you can definitely feel comfortable watching it with kids.
