Wil Horneff's was Far better than the 1940,s Yearling..

Greeting,

This was a well done re-make of the an American Classic. The acting was superb, the filming was more visually complete, and this is a must for any 13 teen year old who has to do a book report for school...not to mention the parent helping.

No kidding as a 7th grader I had to read this book as well and I can tell you that as an adult this is one that you will enjoy helping your kid with, if you rent the video first. By the way the Wil Horneff,Jean Smart,and Peter Straus combination could not have been more perfectly selected as the leads in this coming of age classic.
