Movie Monday!

Feature Presentation...

Today's theme from The Bumbles is movies featuring children actors! Remember when Anna Paquin won the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in 1993 at age 11? She's just one example of the many talented kids who act in good movies for our enjoyment. Share on your blog the roles you've enjoyed from child actors and link them back to The Bumbles Blog.
If you don't have a blog, list your choices in the comment section of The Bumbles Movie post!
