The first scene shot was the romantic kissing scene by the fire between Jonathan Jackson and Alexis Bledel. Jackson, who had been cast at the last minute, had not even met Bledel before shooting the scene. See more »
When Joshua Jackson and Alexis Bledel's characters go swimming, she tells him that she can't swim and he says, "You're joshing me," which was a popular saying in 2002, but was not in existence in the time period (early 1900s) when the scene takes place. See more »

Like many other people on this website, I myself had to read the novel upon which this film is based when I was in the sixth grade. I really can't remember it that much, but seeing the movie brought some of it back to me.
The movie strays from Babitt's novel in some ways, as the "love" between two central characters is romanticized slightly. Otherwise, the story is not changed all that much, but there are still a few minor changes to the story that I could remember.
Most of the cast was perfect. Ben Kingsley fits the role of The Man in the Yellow Suit pretty well. Out of place kinda are Sissy Spacek and William Hurt who have the minority roles in this film. They were still quite good, though.
The story flows nicely, but there were still a few scenes that were different as I had envisioned. I pictured the Treegap Constable having a bigger role, and I also envisioned there to be more 19th century costume and prop designs. Just some things to be kept in mind when the next remake of this novel comes out in another thirty years or so.
TUCK EVERLASTING: 4/5.
