warm family film
11 March 2002 | by (Weaverville, NC) – See all my reviews

This seldom-seen movie involves two orphans who flee from their non-caring foster mother and take up residence in an abandoned treehouse in Central Park. While living above it all, they make the acquaintance of a lonely elderly woman, who communicates with them through written messages on a park bench. As the friendship develops, the three come to rely on each other, but when a thug tries to mug the old lady, the two children must make a decision to remain in their kingdom in the trees or come down the tree to reality . ..

Great little film for the whole family. Ruth Gordon is always a joy to watch, as are the brother and sister. Brooke Shields has a small role as girl in the park. At one time this flick was on video(the copyright said 1984 on the cassette I rented from my trusty independent video store)but is now undoubtably out of print. Great Sunday afternoon viewing.
