Excellent movie worth watching and far superior to the Disney version
29 December 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I agree will all the positive comments made on this movie. The Disney version must be loved by a lot of Twilight fans. Winnie doesn't even LOOK like a little girl in it and in my opinion they wrecked the movie by remaking it. The original movie really does take you away to a far place in the past when things were a little bit more simple, kind and gentle. As one reader put it so well...The movie kind of put him a trance and swept him away. It did the same for me. I was curious as to what happened to some of the actors in this movie and was able to get in touch with Margaret Chamberlain ( Winnie Foster) She said she starred in this movie just before she started high school and that is was an enjoyable and positive experience for a girl at her age. In the end she became a successful attorney and still practices today. A very kind and beautiful lady. If anything, I would suggest that people watch this one BEFORE they watch the Disney version. You will truly get a better feel of the movie. The original can be watched on YouTube as well if anyone is interested as this movie is no longer in print and never made into a DVD as far as I can tell.
