Rocket Science

I saw this last weekend and loved it. It’s coming of age story, featuring Hal Hefner (Reece Thompson), a high school boy with a speech impediment. Hal doesn’t get the girl. Doesn’t learn how to speak normally. His father and mother break up and never get back together. His speech therapist acknowledges early on that he isn’t going to be much help. In fact, the only triumph in the entire movie involves Hal ordering a slice of pizza. Despite all this, it’s a feel good movie.

Highly recommended.
