Great Movies With Child Protagonists

Proving the quality of young talent time after time, these movies all follow child main characters. Perhaps not the top billed actors in these films (the industry is what it is), but indisputably the scene stealers. A couple of animated ones as well. This list also focusses on the character, rather than the actor. Sometimes actors over 18 play younger roles.
