Portman, post her shattering breakout role in ‘Leon’, Portman played a bevy of small, insignificant roles before her role in this ensemble Indie flick about Willie, a man at crossroads in his life who is home for his high school class reunion, where he and those around him discover their true calling. Portman plays 13-year old Marty, Willie’s neighbour who harbours an innocent attraction towards him, and wishes that he wait for her to turn 18 so that they can “Walk through this world together.” Within the limited screen time, Portman oozes the qualities of a future acting sensation.
