About this movie

Growing Up Smith is the warm coming-of-age story of Smith, a 10-year-old boy from India living in small town America in 1979. As his family tries to straddle the line between embracing the American Dream and preserving their Indian heritage, Smith sneaks out for a taste of Kentucky Fried Chicken, dons a Saturday Night Fever costume, and falls in love with Amy, the girl next door. And in Amy's father, Butch, Smith also finds the all-American cowboy he wishes his own father could be.

This story was not about immigration, but it was about the innocence of children, and the heart of a lion in a very small boy. Smith is a an example for all men to follow, and we could all use a little growing up in Smith's world. Funny, with bits of Indian and American humor, I enjoyed the deadpan jokes and explanations produced by the infamous Amy.
