LIKE SUNDAY, LIKE RAIN tells the story of Reggie, a 12 year old rich prodigy who lives in a castle in New York, surrounded by wealth but living a lonely life as his parents are frequently absent. Eleanor is a young musician going through the pains of growing up, who is having problems with her boyfriend and was recently fired from her job. This is a beautiful story about discovery and acceptance.

User Reviews: A protagonist/antagonist tale of a precocious young man whose intelligence and wealth makes it easy to manipulate all about him for his own convenience (albeit mostly positive); butts heads with his new nanny who, of course, is polar opposite and predictably they both compromise (well one more than the other) to make a predictable but enjoyable journey.

Casting and subsequent acting first rate. Dialogue appropriate to the roles was outstanding and naturalistically convincing.

Ending, however, was not convincing or challenging. Nanny was in a situation where the resources would have opened many windows of opportunity, so her decision did not jibe with her situational intelligence. A more creative ending would have been a subway (or equivalent) playing duet possibly as a foothold to greater things. Additionally, the young man could have learned to use his skills to help his classmates and even the teacher, and later, others as well. The nanny also had the resources to be selfless and be a positive changer.
