A Beautiful Movie For The Whole Family
12 March 2003 | by (vancouver) – See all my reviews

Winnie Foster(Alexis Bledel) is a free spirited young girl who is sick of living a boring life with her rich strict parents and one night after an argument with her parents Winnie runs away. She gets lost in a forest and stumbles upon Jesse(Jonathon Jackson). His family now takes Winnie with them because she has discovered a secret. That the Tuck's are immortal and that she can never ever tell anybody about that. Winnie and Jesse fall in love, and now Winnie must choose, will she go on and live her life like she is supposed to, or will she become immortal just like Jesse and spend forever with him? I thought this was a very beautiful movie, it is not just for kids like many people say. I think the whole family could enjoy this movie, it questions a lot of things people wonder about these days and it's just a really great magical fairytale. I would give Tuck Everlasting 10/10
