Storyline

Wealthy, impossible to please lady Polly, whom only gardener Tom's irresistibly charming, indomitably cheerful son Tim, the chauffeur-handyman, can handle, grudgingly lets her late sister's orphaned daughter Pollyanna (11) move into her grand home. The staff takes to the playful brat, who finds the grimly stern dignified house regime stifling, but often gets round it. The happy game Pollyanna's father taught her soon spreads friendship and joy in the village. After succeeding to adopt a stray cat and dog, she sets her mind to 'fellow orphan' Jimmy Bean. Finding recluse rich neighbor Pendleton with a broken leg and another accident starts a cascade involving his and her family's past. Written by KGF Vissers

not my usual cup of tea
1 January 2003 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

I didn't mean to watch this movie on TV, but it just happened to be on, and I just couldn't turn it off. It's a typical piece of mawkish victorian children's literature that gets lined up for the Disney treatment. A couple of hours later, and with a tear in my eye, I had to admit they'd done a good job, and now I want to read the book. I'd always assumed this was an American book, so I looked it up, and seems it's was originally set in Vermont, so I guess this is a bit of a perverse, reverse export.

OK. It's not the greatest movies you'll ever see, but I gave it 10 out of 10 because I think it did what it had set out to do, was a really good watch, and managed to draw me right in, and I can't imagine anybody not loving this TV movie.

Even tho it's not my usual cup of tea.
