Storyline

But Ociee's idyllic life is thrown into a tailspin when her Papa realizes that since the death of Ociee's mother, and Ociee's run-in with a mysterious Gypsy, the rough and tumble world of their rural farm is not the place for Ociee to be growing up. Reluctantly, Papa decides it is time to send Ociee to Asheville, N.C., where her Aunt Mamie can teach her to become "a young lady." With a heavy heart, Ociee boards the train bound for her uncertain new life far from the home she's always known. Once on her way, it's not long before Ociee meets an array of interesting (and renowned) characters including the world's pioneering female investigative journalist Nellie Bly, Orville and Wilbur Wright, and even the President of the United States, William McKinley, for whom Ociee inspires a...

We loved it!
2 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

My husband and I took my eight and ten year old daughters to see this film on a recommendation from our neighbors. We loved it! Our girls continue to quote lines from the film especially "Hey Mister, Where's your sister?" So many times we take our children to movies and struggle to answer question concerning the movies content. With Ociee Nash, we were able to get a bit of a history lesson with characters like President McKinley, the Wright Brothers, and Nellie Bly in the story line. The scenery was a delight: the trains, the countryside, the beautiful turn of the century homes. It's nice to find a movie that can be entertaining while at the same time reminding us that character and bravery are timeless qualities.
