SPOILER ALERT! My Girl is the kind of movie that starts out nice and innocent. Then rips out your heart and shows it to you. It might have been a forgettable childhood movie if not for its powerful twist. Last warning about the spoiler. Kevin from Home Alone dies! Anyway the movie is a coming of age story about a girl trying to cope with living in a funeral parlor. Her father enters a new relationship, her only friend in the world dies, and she falls into depression. My Girl feels much more real than any other childhood movie. I would definitely recommend it, but caution: you will cry!
