After running away from her last foster placement with the Regan family, twelve year old Hollis Woods is placed with a new foster mother, the loving, retired art teacher, Josie Cahill. Hollis is a talented artist and her life stories unfold through her pictures. One revealing picture is the "W" picture Hollis drew for a first grade class assignment on the letter "w". Hollis drew her Wish, her Want. She drew a picture of a family. Hollis had that family in the Regan's, but fear of attachment and motional turmoil caused her to run away. As Josie's forgetfulness grows worse, Hollis is forced into the role of caretaker. Through her artwork and her care of Josie, Hollis Woods finds her family. Based on the Newberry Honor award winning book with the same name. Written by
I saw this movie because I read the book in my English class. It was an okay book that was boring early and got better. I'm glad we saw it because it wasted class time, but everyone in the class hated it. The movie was nothing what I imagined in the book which always effects my thought, and the lead did nothing special. The film was not able to go back and fourth between the memories and reality SD it seemed rushed and didn't make sense at first. It made me like the book more. Not a great TV movie, in fact, it's an awful TV movie. No charm and no delight in watching it.
