The smart and sensitive young charge offers Johnny a a new perspective and, as the pair travel from state to state, effectively turns the emotional tables on him. C'MON C'MON is a delicate and deeply moving story about the connections between adults and children, the past and the future, from writer-director Mike Mills (BEGINNERS, BEAUTIFUL LOSERS). With Woody Norman, Gabby Hoffmann.

"'C'mon C'mon' is a great big bear hug wrapped in celluloid." (Independent)
"This is a movie about listening - really listening - to what other people have to say." (Observer)
