Home Sweet Home?
3 October 2005 | by (The Society NY) – See all my reviews

Meet Virginia "Rusty" Dickinson (Hayley Carr) a preteen whose returned to England after spending the war years (World War II 1939-45) in Canada away from her mother Mrs. Peggy Dickinson (Hayley Carr). Her father has just been discharged from the Army. Rusty rather amiably greets her new born brother with a bright hello as the family tries to re-adjust to each other. The father is a rather harsh and moody sort winding down from his war time experiences. The mood can vary from unpleasant to terrifying.

Will the family explode into a more deadly type of war or will they settle into peaceful co-existence? Hayley Carr plays the role of Rusty with a sparkling innocence reminiscent of a young Hayley Mills and not unsurprisingly Hayley Carr also played Pollyanna.

The photography is hazy enough to impart the very feel of an early grainy color flick from the period, the 1940s or early 50s.
