Foster (2011). 1h 30m | PG

“In this day and age it is becoming increasingly difficult to find movies that I can show to my 99-year-old mother. If there is the least bit of profanity or gratuitous violence, she just wonu0026#39;t watch any more! So it was wonderful to see u0026quot;Fosteru0026quot; and I look forward to inviting Ma to come and see it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhat an amazing little actor is Maurice Cole! Unfortunately, there is almost nothing about him on IMDb – not even his birthdate and so I am still wondering if, as the plot says, he was actually just seven years old when Foster was shot. If he was, then he is amazing! His clear and accurate pronunciation of some quite long and technical words would, I should imagine, put him into the child prodigy category. The only reason we wonu0026#39;t see a lot more of him is if his parents decide that that donu0026#39;t want him to fall into the many traps that seem to await child stars.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story is lovely – just nice people doing nice things and attempting to cope with lifeu0026#39;s challenges and setbacks. The only reservation that I had about the whole movie was the selection of Toni Collette as Zooey. I would love to have seen Sandra Bullock in that role! And why did an Aussie actress have a sort of Scottish accent? Her mother didnu0026#39;t and the film wasnu0026#39;t set in Scotland (as far as I could tell), her husband had his own natural very slight Welsh accent so that was, to me, a distraction because, rather than give the story my whole attention, I found myself wondering about that.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNevertheless, a delightful film that will please Ma and my grandchildren equally.”
