Stolen Summer

Stolen Summer (2002): Pete, an eight-year-old Catholic boy growing up in the suburbs of Chicago in the 70s, is admonished by a nun to follow the path of the Lord, and not that of the Devil. Perhaps taking this message a bit too seriously, Pete decides it’s his goal for the summer to help someone get into heaven.

Directed by Pete Jones

    Unfortunately, I missed the ending of this beautiful story…how can I view it again?

    This is a very touching film. It also teaches us the differences between two religious: Catholicism vs Judaism through the friendship of two boys. It is a film that I can recommend for the entire family. The language, the characters, the photography make me to watch the film again and again. Thank you for enriching my knowledge by presenting Stolen Summer.

    A wonderful, positive movie experience and one that I hope WNET-TV shows again. I think I will rememver this movie as a presentation and story of the concept of faith in action.

    This lovely family oriented movie held my interest from start to finish. Many memories were brought to mind having attended Catholic schools. In adulthood, I became best friends with a woman of the
    Jewish faith. So, there was an obvious connection for me during the movie. I enjoyed the presentation very much.

    This is such a beautiful film and the dialogue is some of the best ever written. Young Pete is such a charmer and so brilliant. And his little friend, so sweet and innocent. I was in tears at times, it’s so moving. Exquisite film in every way.

    I want to thank PBS Ch 13, my favorite channel for airing this movie. I want to than Ben Affleck and Matt Damon for their great film. I enjoyed this movie very much. Bonnie Hunt and Aidan Quinn are fabulous. The Rabbi, marvelous. But the icing on this cake for me was Adi Stein. I think my grandson will be just like him!!!! What is he doing now and how can I purchase this CD? Just loved it from beginning to end.
