What a wonderful movie!
8 September 2004 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

Three words: Turner Classic Movies! Uncut and no commericals. Anyway, I saw this lovely movie last night and just loved it. The movie is a definite "animal" movie as the kid not only talks to horses, but dogs, chickens and other animals as well. The whole family is a little eccentric and Spring Byington fits that bill perfectly and was perfectly cast as the head of household and a woman with a truly open mind- ready to at least consider just about any possibility- rather than just shouting "NO" at any unusual idea. I try to be more like that- with the ability to accept change for what it is: inevitable. Her character does however, have the certainty of conviction that all change is for the better- I'm not so sure. Anyway, the movie does have it's sad parts- lessons of loss and recovery- greed and selflessness- all wrapped in a movie that not "too" preachy- there's even a funny chicken scene!
