A truly remarkable achievement
27 June 2005 | by (South Portland, Maine) – See all my reviews

I revisited this movie last Summer. Previously I had seen it in fourth grade after reading the book. As if it weren't good enough then, it's wonderful now (if that phrase makes sense enough). Independently made movies usually hit the mark perfectly and this is no exception. I thought it perfectly captured the feel of the book and it gave me a really good feeling, though the specific reason I can't quite place. The cast is made up of amerature actor, most of whom did nothing else on screen. I wish I knew more than I do about who played what character. I'm particularly curious about Bruce D'Auria, as he's listed in the opening credits but no one knows who he was. Miles, perhaps? But anyway...

Independent director Frederick King-Keller was the perfect choice for this movie. He just does an excellent job. His father, Fred A. Keller, plays Angus Tuck, head of the immortal family.

If there's one problem I have with this movie, it's the lighting. Some of the shots, especially during the nighttime scenes, are not always easy to see. I guess that often comes of being an independent movie. But that's easy to cast aside. Contrary to what some other IMDb users think, this is not a boring movie at all. It's beautiful, charming, and well worth your money. Take my advice, see this. Don't even bother with that piece of trash from Disney a few years ago. This will always be the definitive Tuck Everlasting.
