MABEL is a sweet little film. 

It tells the story of Cassie, a young girl who love plants. She is not that good with people. He life is thrown into turmoil when her family moves from Virginia to upstate New York. Raising her cranky level, Cassie starts to warm to people when one of her teachers starts a botany club.

MABEL is  90 minutes with good people. Yes the film covers some territory we’ve seen before, but the cast is so good and they make their characters so likable that you can’t help but fall in love with them. You genuinely want to spend time with them which is rare these days. Too many filmmakers make films about annoying people or people that they don’t like, but that’s not the case here. Nicholas Ma likes the people on the screen so we do to.

While this isn’t going to rock the pillars of heaven, it is going to make you smile, which is something we can all use these days.
