two solid actresses in old fashion fare
17 November 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Katy Carr (Alison Pill) is running wild and her widowed doctor father is too amiable to discipline her. She is ostensibly taking care of her younger siblings but isn't necessarily that good with the responsibility. Aunt Izzie wants to send her away to school. Katy and Ned find a tramp (Dean Stockwell) passed out in the barn. Infirmed cousin Helen (Megan Follows) arrives to stay with the family.

This is based on the 1872 children's book and it has an old fashion feel to it. It's a smallish Canadian production. Alison Pill is able to lift the center of the movie while Megan Follows is a great mentor. The story is difficult at times. The two actors are doing some solid work. This is unlikely fare for the young. It's probably more for older folks.
