I saw this movie as a child with my family, my mother being the most enthusiastic as it was filmed in Sutton QC, where she grew up. Back then, I thought the idea of going into the mountains and living in one's own treehouse was a fabulous idea!
The familiar scenery of the Green Mountains of southern Québec was breathtaking on the big screen. My mother pointed out the scene where Teddy Eccles' character, Sam, goes to the library in Knowlton, a library she had been to many times.
I understand Eccles attended and signed the guestbook of Olivet Baptist Church in Sutton, the church where my mother grew up.
Certainly, every kid has a dream of some adventure independent of parents and this movie helped me live mine a little.
