Quotes

Harry Garland: [after Mandy comes in from outside, crying] What happened, did the dog bite her or something?
Christine Garland: [concerned] I don't know. Something frightened her. She couldn't tell me what. Harry, I can't go on like this. It was all right when she was a baby, but now, you never know, I don't know whether she's being naughty and playing me up or whether there's something really the matter.
[sternly]
Christine Garland: There's just no contact.
[desperately]
Christine Garland: There must be something we can do?

Still memorable, after all these years!
3 July 2003 | by (Luton, England) – See all my reviews

I have not seen this movie since I was a child, I am now 40 years old, but it still comes back to me. I loved this movie. I may have seen it twice as I remember it so well. I think it impressed upon me the ability children have to shine through adversity, and the need to believe that they really can make it, if given the right encouragement, in the right way, at the time that is right for them! I think it was a well acted and well thought out story line, with a heart rending performance by Mandy Miller. I would dearly love to see this movie again!
