A girl is evacuated to America at the start of World WarII and returns to England after the war
21 March 1999 | by (Dallas,Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful film, which tells how a little girl who was exiled from England to Connecticut at the start of World War II returns to England after the war and is unable to adjust because she tries to apply what she learned in America and everything she does is misinterpreted. There are some delightful scenes such as the time when mother and daughter play hide and seek with their son, and the time when the only one who is kind to Rusty helps her with her Latin.
