Very engaging film, beautiful scenery, you care about the characters.
30 June 2003 | by (Durham, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

I loved this film. The children are engaging and I became surprisingly invested in their efforts. I wish I could have seen the film on the big screen because this area of North Carolina is incredible. Their poverty and tremendous difficulties juxtaposed with the peace and serenity of the land combine the sweet and the bitter beautifully.
