Such a sweet movie for kids. A timeless story, told without a lot of embellishment. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was interesting and absorbing for my nine year old in 2008, despite its vintage. He had read the book, but my younger one hadn't, and whether it was her age (5) or gender, or the fact that she didn't know the story, she was a bit less enthralled.

But talk about a cast... Cynthia Nixon, Ed Begley... As for the starring roles, everyone knows Anthony Michael Hall, of course (thanks to John Hughes), but his co-star, Pat Creadon, has gone on to make the terrific documentaries "Wordplay" and "IOUSA." Both, in my book, far greater contributions to the world than AMH's body of work! Funny to see a serious filmmaker in what was probably his introduction to the industry.
