My Girl (1991)
A girl (11), Vada, and her 'coming of age' summer- best friend Thomas J, first loves, step mum, climbing trees, growing up, and a horrible tragedy...
I absolutely love this film - it's my favourite ever. Forget all high tech special effects etc etc films - this one has it spot on. It makes me cry and that's a very difficult thing to do! I first watched this when I was about 9/10 (now 16) at my great-grandmother's house. She has this huge collection of videos and I loved the look of this one because the cover is so... normal but enjoyable looking if you see what I mean. Anyway, we watched it, and my sister thought it was ludicrous, and in a way I suppose it has it's ridiculous moments, but even so it's so sad, and touching, and deep, but also funny at times. I bought it for £1 a few weeks ago and just watched it again. It is just incredibly fantastic with amazing acting from all.
About 18 months ago I was in some out of the way old video/record shop on holiday in Bristol. I was a My Girl 2 video and was desperate to buy it, but my mum and dad said it was ridiculous and wouldn't let me. I've never seen it anywhere again, and having asked for it for Christmas this year, my mum tells me she's asked and it no longer exists... I would so love to watch it!
I really recommend My Girl to everyone of all ages, genders, etc. It's message reaches everyone.
