What is Milton's Secret?

"Milton's Secret" is a film about family, compassion, overcoming adversity, self empowerment, companionship, peer pressure/bullying, and living in the here and now. This skillfully crafted dramatic feature film is based on the book by Eckhart Tolle and Robert S. Friedman. "Milton's Secret" is a coming of age story about an 11-year-old boy growing up in an economically depressed suburb, and the elderquest of his grandfather. Milton's troubles seem to be coming from every direction. His mother and father are workaholics with issues, and he is being bullied at school. Fear and dread are everywhere and he can't stop worrying about all of them all of the time. When his unconventional grandfather (Donald Sutherland) visits, Milton learns that rehashing bad experiences and worrying about the future are preventing him from finding true happiness in the ‘Now’. This movie leaves you feeling hopefully and inspired to take charge of your own life and destiny..being present and living in the here and now.
