This Beautiful Story Will Tug At Your Heart And Make You Cry
5 August 2004 | by (Huxley, Iowa) – See all my reviews

A Girl Named Sooner is a beautiful story that will absolutely tug at your heart, and make you cry.This is a rare quality film that shines like a bright gorgeous star.I cannot say enough about this movie!I saw this movie way back in 1975, and I cried and cried.It was almost painful to watch a young innocent child trying so hard to find her place in the tough world.I was totally absorbed in this story from the very first scene to the very last scene.The young actress that played the young Sooner was enchanting, she was dazzling! Lee Remick was superb as the lady who tried to take care of Sooner.Richard Crenna was perfect as the concerned and loving husband.I found myself resenting the lady in the story that was played by Lee Remick, because the part was played so well,and so brilliantly by her.Cloris Leachman as the rather eccentric older caretaker of the little girl was top notch. Cloris Leachman is such a wonderful actress with great range.I am so glad that I am able to see this movie every now and then.I have this movie gem in my film library.I give this story a very high recommendation for entire families to sit down and watch.It does not get any better than A Girl Named Sooner!
