Storyline

A young woman is assigned to teach school in a secluded valley whose inhabitants appear stern, secretive and anti-pleasure. Following two children who disappear to play in the woods, she finds that this is actually a community of extraterrestrials with mild paranormal powers who are attempting to repress and deny their heritage for fear of arousing prejudice and hatred in their human neighbors.

As usual, doesn't live up to the book.
11 June 1999 | by (Canton, OH) – See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this movie years ago, shortly after having read the book upon which it is based. Being a young kid then, with a crush on Kim Darby, I was just enchanted to see this movie. Of course seeing it again as an adult reveals it for what it is, a nice try that fell a bit short.
