Much loved South African classic
19 March 2002 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

OK, so this didn't win any Oscars, but it is a solid family movie based on a great, much-loved, classic South African book. The kids will love it, and the adults should really read the book to truly appreciate the story, and embellish the story to the kids. Even if you just watch this movie to marvel at the beautiful scenery, you will enjoy it! As previously mentioned, ignore the first ignorant post.
