Film Trailer: Martian Child
Haven’t you asked yourself, "Hey self, what kind of movie would be made if the guy who wrote The Trouble with Tribbles wrote a science fiction story and it won a Nebula award and a Hugo award and it got turned into a screenplay and it was really a parenting story that just seemed like science fiction?" Yeah, me too!
I’ve not read the story, but the kicker for me is that it appears to be a solid drama about a single science fiction writer who wants to adopt a troubled boy who spends his time hiding in a box pretending to be a Martian. According to Wikipedia, the story is loosely based on Jerrold’s own experience adopting a child as a single parent.
It hits the screens November 2nd. Time to call the babysitter…
