Great musical, awesome acting!
6 January 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Remember Craig T. Nelson, folks? "Polgergiest"? What about Isabella Rosilini? "Merlin" "Death Becomes her". And how about the wonderful lady who plays Linette in this story? I have her "Little Princess" film -- very long but fun. Anyhow, I thought this movie was just the bomb. I loved every single song. "Green in the Blue", "Night..." "A man without a heart", "Good Little Girls"... I just loved them ALL! "You should never talk to strangers" is my favorite song, and absolutely the moral of the whole story. I think everyone does a marvellous acting job. I don't think I'll ever get tired of it.
