"Make do with what you have."
11 September 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie concerns a mysterious farmer who moves into a drought-stricken farming community and begins raising a very unusual crop. The The movie benefits greatly from the presence of Rip Torn as the farmer and Mara Wilson as the young girl who befriends him. Wilson proves again that she has charm and charisma when in the right film. Fun, light-hearted film with a message beneath the froth.
