Brooklyn Bridge (12) — Precocious Sasha is flustered by a critical essay on the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s due tomorrow and failure to complete means failure of the fifth grade. In an attempt to find a pen, she meets every neighbour she never knew existed. The characters are perfectly eccentric and the dialogue is quick-witted—what Woody Allen would make if he is ever contracted by Disney. Brooklyn Bridge may entertain its parent audience before its intended audience, but the enchanting Anna-Maria LeMaistre will keep the kids from feeling left out. A few unresolved issues and tedious moments go almost unnoticed underneath this infectious romp. 4.5/5 OM
