As close to the book as you can get!
12 December 2002 | by (Southern New Jersey USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie a couple of times and read the book too. The movie I would say is generally sad. It seems no one understands or listens to Virginia except for this one boy that she is not allowed to see because she is in boarding school, and I can entirely relate to her expieriences, though not during that time. To me the girl shouldn't of been sent to the states in the first place because back in 1940 there were plenty of resources for children besides sailing abroad. This movie is a real tear crying movie, unless you can bear with it.
