I'm sure most, if not all, are quite familiar with Avalon, as its in the data base here (but with no picture available!) so I thought I'd post this, as I can't recall seeing DVD captures anywhere.  (How does one vote on a movie from the database?)

As stated from IMDb & here "A Jewish family comes to USA at the beginning of the century and they and their children try to make themselves a better future in the promised land."

I certainly enjoyed Elijah's performance in Avalon, it surprised me that he had so much screen time; I saw this for the first time a few days ago, though I had seen every other boy-Elijah movie in the year they were released or came out on VHS.  I had been under the assumption it was a film where he'd be a "little boy in the background."  Not so!

I found the film itself to be excellent, but a bit sad, about families growing apart due to, according to IMDb reviews, technology -- mainly the introduction of television.  The movie's anchoring points are centered on Thanksgiving and the 4th of July (never mind that Elijah never ages over -- what -- three or four years? when Thanksgiving goes from a big family gathering to t.v. trays on the living room couch.)  8 1/2 stars for boy content, boy REALITY, performance and cuteness (okay, 10 for the latter!)

I can post more captures, including more from the beach scene, if this goes to a second page -- I want to be nice to those with slow downloads.  Mindless "nice pics" or friendly insults, or "oops, duplicate post!" are  okay with ME  Smiley

If captures -- esp. improved by DVD -- of films that have been around for a while, and are well known, are appreciated, let everyone know.  I know I'll NEVER be able to compete with the excellent posters that advise of "new" and "upcoming" films!

Oh, wwaabbiitt, thanks for posting these! :bigok:

I've seen this one a couple of times on cable, but I'd never seen any caps from it before, either. You're right, it's an excellent movie, and Elijah is as much the star of it as anyone else. Smiley

Playing with fire is a bad thing, huh?

Love,
Sir J

Thanks very much, Wwaabbiitt. You're right - a gallery of this one was long overdue! And yes, captures of well-known movies on DVD are definitely appreciated. We don't need yet another gallery of A.I. or some other obvious favourite, but there are plenty of excellent movies featuring boys on DVD that lack a nice gallery.

The quality of your caps is quite good, by the way.

Smiley I saw this very good and moving movie this evening. I liked very much the very good play pf Elijah WOOD in part of Michaël and I liked also the play of Grant GELT in part of Teddey. My movie rating is 8/10 !
