Storyline

The Thomsons - parents Thomas and Francie, and children Willa, Arthur, Beatrice (nicknamed Booky) and Jakey - are a loving working class family living in the Depression era in Toronto. It's September and the new school year has just started. Willa has thoughts of attending medical school after she graduates, despite the family not having the money to send her. Arthur is showing aptitude in drawing, and although his parents want to support his skill, Thomas in particular wants him to take up a vocation that is a little more stable. This difference places a strain between father and son. And Booky is reveling in her skills in spelling class. Although it's fall, spring fever has hit the Thomson women. Francie has run into an old high school beau, reminiscing on times with him making her think that she has been neglecting the romantic side of her marriage. Willa, the part time librarian, is attracted to Russell, the medical student she meets at the library. And 11-year old Booky is happy ... Written by Huggo

I loved it
11 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember when "The Waltons" first appeared on TV; it gave me a warm everything will be alright with the world feeling; people are decent, hardworking, and they come to the aid of their neighbor in times of trouble. It took place during the depression as does Bookys Crush. I can't say why but I love movies about that era. I was born shortly after it ended, but my parents lived through it and somehow always felt it would come back. One of the best reasons I loved this movie was that Megan Follows is a lead character. I have been madly in love with her since I saw "Anne of Green Gables" and "Anne of Avonlea"; Wow she was great. This film is about adolescent love and a family of four just barely making it. It made me relaxed and warm all over and I'm not surprised that the rating is only 50% by others. I'm just a sucker for these movies. I'm a 67 year old man and this movie is for the 12 to 15 year old range. I've got to get a copy for my daughters and see what they think of it.
