Storyline

Tuck Everlasting is the story of a girl named Winnie and a family whom she meets, the Tucks. The Tucks have a secret, they're immortal.They drank water from a spring that was actually a fountain of youth. Until the end of time, they will stay that way. Winnie falls in love with one of the Tucks, Jesse, a "17"-year-old boy who shares the same feelings for her. Scared of death, Winnie must choose between being immortal and being with Jesse or following the circle of life and dying someday. The Tucks try to teach her how she shouldn't fear death, how they would give anything to die. It teaches the importance and understanding of life and death.It shows that you should not fear death, but to fear an unlived life. Written by Katie C.

A Great Adaptation From the Classic Novel
2 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

I had to read 'Tuck Everlasting' when I was in junior high and I thought it was one of the best books I had ever read and I still do too. The movie was unbelievable! The cast was extraordinary. Out of all the performances in the movie, my favorite was Ben Kingsley. He fitted the image I had in my head of the man in the yellow suite and did a magnificent job. For all the people who have fallen in love with the book, they need to see the movie too. This is one of the few movies adapted from a book that is just as good as the boo itself. Go see the magic in 'Tuck Everlasting'.
