It is a beautiful movie and filled with lots of wonderful scenes. It is a story of friendship that is built and grows despite the obvious differences that exist not only between the young people but the robot (or alien) that they undertake to help. It is friends who help each other out of difficult times, never leave each other behind, search for each other in the face of adversity and fear. It is about trust. It was an awesome recommendation that I thoroughly enjoyed with my young friend and it taught beautiful messages through out.
The messages throughout the movie were significant for me as we left behind so many family, friends and relationships when we moved halfway across this vast country but my friend AC in his wisdom left me with an all important message from this movie that we watched together...he taught me that distance is no barrier between true friends.
Having a friend light years away taught us that distance is just a state of mind. If you're best friends you always will be no matter where you are in the universe.
