Great Movie - It should be out on DVD!
23 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would happily pay $20.00 US for this movie.

I fondly recall watching "The Truth About Spring". Sir John Mills and Hayley are two of my favorites. This movie is entertaining and the scenery is spectacular. When I watched it the first time I was but 12 years old, and I can still recall scenes from the movie. I watched the movie again when I was a young man with my daughter, we both enjoyed a cold rainy afternoon in Michigan, able to escape in a wonderful movie. I only hope that I can watch "The Truth About Spring" again with my four Granddaughters. The movie successfully paired Hayley Mills with James Mac Arthur in a delicate developing young romance that, in the beginning, James Mac Arthur is really quite unsure of. Add to this mix, the seasoned common sense of John Mills, and the cast just take off with the plot from there on. I do recommend this movie to any age audience.
