Jodie Foster steals the show!
21 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having grown up in Missouri only an hour from Hannibal,it is gratifying to see the authentic locations that really capture the setting, and terrific portrayals from a great cast really create the spirit of Twain's book.

I first saw this film when my grandparents took me to it long ago but I still can relive the joy of my childhood and "freebootin". I always imagined myself as a sort of Tom Sawyer from watching this(I secretly wanted to be him).....the film still deeply effects me......The cave sequence was actually filmed in Merramac Caverns cave, and I also believe Onondaga Cave in Missouri...it might be worth your time to visit them if you are visiting the state of Missouri....
