WOW!
13 October 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Mills, Hayley that is (in her first screen role), completely steals the movie, from more seasoned film veterans. It is easy to see why Walt Disney was struck with her talent, and placed her under contract. The film has heart to spare, and is a real gem. It may be hard to find, but it is more than worth the search. Hayley and the entire cast are great!
