Loved this movie
16 November 2004 | by (Lansing, Michigan) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie in years, but I loved it when it back then. I'd like to see it on video or DVD. When I first saw it I didn't know at the time that these orphan trains were something that really happened. I would have to say this movie shows a sad time in American history, but also a good time for those kids lucky enough to find a better place to live.

I've been reading up on this movie here online and I knew that Jill Eikenberry was in it and she gave a very good performance, in my opinion. I did not, however, until today realize that Glenn Close is also in this movie. I will have to watch it again if I can find it to see her.
