A great story about friendship that reminds me of home.
29 November 1998 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film because it did capture everything that's great about small-town life, including bonds shared with the people around you. Even though this kind of story could take place anywhere, placing it in a small country town slowed the story down so that I could really enjoy it. The nostalgia also brought a tear to my eye:)
