Trivia

Several elements from the original story have been changed: in the novel, Vicky and her family knew about her grandfather's condition the entire time, she had an older brother, her younger sister was much older and prettier, there was a third boy she was interested in, the plot element about drift nets was entirely absent, and her parents were present during the whole trip at the grandfather's house.

Goofs

In the opening scene, while Mischa Barton's character dreams of swimming as a mermaid, she does a somersault underwater that horribly reveals the fakeness of the tail: a flap of fabric from the waist is shown dangling, her knees scrunch up the material, and the entire waistline crinkles up.

The novel fans were already in the starting blocks...
30 August 2002 | by (Tullahoma, TN) – See all my reviews

How many times have we seen this? There is a popular novel and so many of the fans are just chomping at the bit to trash the movie regardless of the final product. "How dare they make a movie based on my 'oh so perfect' novel?" Well, I read the novel and watched the movie. I found the novel to be heavy-handed, preachy, and pretentious. The movie is a fun family film that is touching it's target audience exactly as intended. Do we really want to see "The Yearling" again? Can't a Summer film be fun and not another depressing trip through someone's vision of death and dying? The novel reached it's target audience and the movie did the same. Of course Disney knew that many fans of the novel would be up in arms about the differences from the book. But Disney knows how to reach their audience and entertain them and they have done a splendid job with "Ring of Endless Light." The LA Times described Mischa Barton's presence as luminary in their hearty endorsement of this film. Her performance was superb as always.
