The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web

One of those films that leaves me with a smile, no matter how often I see it. It leaves me with a smile, mainly for the fact that these kids remind me of my friends, and what it was like growing up with them. Narrated by Richard Dreyfuss (who sounds not unlike Daniel Stern's voice over on The Wonder Years), this is true to the book almost word for word. It has four daring and difficult performances by the young actors, a touching air of nostalgia and a harrowing moment involving the ultimate train dodge. Oh, and Kiefer Sutherland isn't half bad as the hateful bully.
