[to Samantha; when they meet at the alley behind the orphanage]

Nellie is one of the children of the hired help. Samantha is a lonely little, rich girl. They befriend each other and are a comfort to one another.
Historically interesting as well. Brings out the way life was for children regarding child-labor in factories. They were more like slaves than employees.
This film really drew me in, mainly because I love films regarding the Victorian time period. But the movie is mainly about the relationship that Samantha has with her grandmother and uncle and Nellie. Everything appears to take a turn for the worse when her uncle introduces his fiancé. Samantha fears that she will now be more alone than ever, but the kindness of her uncle's new wife wins her heart.
Everything in this movie turned out the way that I would have wanted it to. Love conquered all.
