Great story line, wonderful acting, a great portrayal of the 1950's.
8 August 1999 | by (Asheville) – See all my reviews

Polly moves in with her aunt, named Polly as well. She is played by Keisha Knight Pulliam. Phylicia Rashad plays Aunt Polly. Fantastic music, a musical. One of the best movies that the 80's would bring. The acting and story-line sent a message out to viewers. I love this movie.
