Storyline

Small Wells is an inconspicuous Midwest town, where nothing truly spectacular happens, so whatever gets into its local newspaper, run by Mark Jansen, is 'exciting'. The local wish well actually works, but only when one 'makes the right wish'. When Mark's motherless daughter does, it mysteriously brings along New York celebrity magazine editor Cynthia Tamerline. Somehow she becomes apprentice at the paper, which is in such poor financial state that Mark is resigned to sell out to a Chicago press syndicate magnate. Written by KGF Vissers

Watching the best of actors
14 February 2010 | by (Goshen, IN, USA) – See all my reviews

Wishing Well is not outstanding in story material but very enjoyable nonetheless. One of the really good things about it is the appearance of Ernest Borgnine, who at 92, is an believable person. An excellent actor (I loved him in Marty) who has been in many movies and on TV, and here he is again with a good role, not just a quick scene. It is also nice to see Tempestt Bledsoe, who has matured well in her looks and talent from the Cosby Show. It was such a pleasure to see her in this. I think many of us would like to do this, at least we feel it sometime in our life. To get out of the life we live and into someplace simple and loving and caring. I think both lead characters are written well. Even some of the music help the story along. I wouldn't advise anyone to watch it if you like reality heavy and deep subjects that tear at the heart and mind. This is just one to sit back and enjoy.
