Great film all-round.
16 May 2001 | by (Kimberling City, MO.) – See all my reviews

I think the first time I saw this movie, I was close to eight years old. It was on the disney channel and I didn't see it again until I was nineteen. This one was really well made for a kids' movie. The acting, directing, story, and script were all excellent. Having grown up in the delta myself, I really appreciate the authenticity that went into the whole thing. I really liked Ann Ramsey (the Goonies) as "the hag" and Richard Farnsworth ("the Grey Fox", "the Straight Story") was also great as Willie's grandfather.

Personally, I think that anyone who sees this movie will like it. It's a great coming of age story and it has really stuck in my memory.
