30 January 2004 | by (kenosha, wi) – See all my reviews

this film originally ran on abc as a "saturday morning special"--the saturday version of the abc afterschool specials. it is an excellent film, full of wonderful performances; well cast. it is an emotional remembrance of childhood and the small, but seminal, events of the type we all carry through to adulthood. great film whether you are a child or an adult.
