True to the Novel's heart
5 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a good version of the Michelle Magorian novel, "Back Home". It stays focused on the novel's central premise of learning to understand one another particularly after changes wrought in difficult circumstances, and really lets the viewer see how a young girl who has spent 5 year in America is vilified and discouraged when she returns to Post WWII Britain and the unfriendly and strange environment of boarding school. The movie does "Disneyfy" the ending and glosses over the intense family strain that occurs in the last chapters of the novel, but all in all it is a nice version and well worth watching. Too bad it's out of print.
