Storyline

Things are not going well in the depression-era town of Castle Gate. Mr. Ribaldi, a mysterious rich man with a disfigured face and an abrasive personality, has just bought and moved into a long-vacant mansion. Bonnie, an adolescent girl who loves to sing, ends up working for Ribaldi so that her family can stay in their house. But Ribaldi is quite an accomplished musician himself, and he is soon giving Bonnie voice lessons. Meanwhile, local businesses are being shut down by foreclosures, and the townspeople suspect Ribaldi is responsible. Written by Joe McCauley <mccauley_je@lfs.loral.com>

Trivia

Mr. Ribalidi's crest, a calligraphic R with a crown over it, can be seen many places: on Bonnie's music folder, the magic mirror, Ribaldi's porch bench where he and Porter talk, his record book (where he keeps track of who he gives checks to), and Ribaldi's iron fences. See more »

Magically sweet
24 January 2002 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

We purchased this movie several years ago and continue to enjoy it. Rigoletto's story line is a clever blend of Beauty and the Beast and The Phantom of the Opera, but it's the MUSIC that keeps me replaying it. The acting is just fine, but the SINGING! "April Child" will forever make me weep... The story is solid and uplifting. An absolutely wonderful family movie.
