This movie need not be over analyzed.
22 March 2003 | by (Kentucky, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this wonderful film many times as a child. It really touched me. Years later i have been able to get hold of a copy and see it again. That sweet little girl still captures my heart. This movie is a good example of how a child, in the midst of all of grownup reality, can see the innocent, carefree goodness of life and share it with everyone around her. My 3 year old is really into this one. Just get it and watch it, you will see what i mean.
