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>

Probably my favorite movie ever.
24 June 1999 | by (Vallejo, CA) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie probably about 50 times, and I love it so much! I quote it all the time to my friends and family, and it is just a wonderful story! I just wish that there was more of a biography on the actors/actresses, because they all did such a wonderful job! There are splendid characters in the story, and the movie is funny--and inspiring at the same time! If any of the actors see this page, you should fill in a little bit of a biography about everyone. It would be nice to know more about you.
