Storyline

In 1935 Toronto, Jane Stuart's mother has taken ill, and the two of them have temporarily moved in with her rich, snobbish grandmother, where Jane is verbally abused and her mother bullied. Jane is forced into a private academy, in which the other girls tell her that her father, whom Jane believes to be dead, is actually alive. Soon after, Andrew Stuart sends word that he would like to meet his long-lost daughter, so Jane is sent by train to Bright River to stay with him, where she encounters an old mystery that she must help her father overcome, new friends, and the chance to bring her father and mother back together again.

loved it
14 January 2001 | by angelbreath3See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this movie. I can't believe they didn't release it in theaters. I am sure that many people will disagree with me, but I love it. I grew up with this movie, enjoyed every minute of it, and yes i was scared by the movie when i was younger. Those scenes with Evelyn used to scare the heck out of me. But, anyways...the point is that this is a great movie.
