Refreshing film for all ages...

Benny and Joon is a strange twist on a good love story. Benny takes care of his beloved sister Joon, who is also mentally ill. Benny loses a bet against his friend and has to take in his cousin Sam. Sam is very peculiar and at first Joon can't stand him. But they soon fall for each other..which creates a new set of problems. Benny and Joon is a movie with many quirks. It is a heartwarming story and it is easy to watch as the characters grow and develop along the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed this film and would recommend it to anyone.
