A Message Wrapped in a Story
26 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

A child, Jewel (played with a bright smile by Jane Mercer), is the only hope for the inhabitants of "Castle Discord". The spiteful antagonists include her grandfather and his maid pit against her widowed aunt and her daughter. There's more story here than in the other films I've seen by Lois Weber. Weber still includes a message or two, though. That was her goal with film-making--to deliver morality to the public. This time, her message was something along the lines of: hate and classism are bad, and if we all got along, we'd be happier. I found the message, or, rather, the story, somewhat heartwarming. Only the heavy-handed teetotalism comes off as ridiculous.

(Note: The print I saw was slightly worn.)
