Big, starring Tom Hanks and released in 1988, is next up in Montclair Film Festival’s Cinema Montclairisimo series. It’s one of those films that is great to see as a teenager, like I was the first time it was released, and again as an adult. There’s lessons to learn for both ages. This sweet and charming movie is most famous for the piano scene at FAO Shwartz, but if you take your kids to see Montclair Film Festival’s screening of it on Church Street in a couple of weeks, I promise that you’ll remember another important thing—that “you’re only young once.” Enjoy life in the moment.
