Storyline

Winnie Foster has everything a young woman could desire. She comes from a well-bred, wealthy, and respected family. She dresses in the finest clothes and is afforded every opportunity to refine herself. But Winnie finds that the heat of summer is not nearly as stifling as her gilded cage. She longs for freedom, for adventure. She escapes one morning to explore the woods surrounding her family's home, and encounters the Tucks, a close-knit family with a mysterious past that begs the question: If you could live forever, would you? And just when Winnie believes she has answered that question for herself, a mysterious man looking to profit from the source of the Tuck's immortality that will have her question her life, her desires, and what is the right thing to do. And in the end, learns, that death is not what is to be feared, but an unlived life. Written by Alyssa B.

Beautiful, thought-provoking film!
28 August 2014 | by CricketthecatSee all my reviews

I rarely give ten stars, but this movie makes the cut. The story asks you to ponder, "What would it be like to live forever?", "Would that be a good thing?", and "If you had the chance, would you choose immortality?" Young Winnie meets the kind yet enigmatic Tuck family and is faced with these very questions. Then, we get to watch her decide her answers.

In terms of style, this is a gorgeous film! I love the rich, saturated colors and hauntingly beautiful score! The narrative is unrushed and savors each scene without actually feeling slow. In terms of casting, I also think it is perfect! When I watch the story, I stop seeing actors and actresses, but only see Winnie, Jesse, Mae, etc.

If you enjoy a movie that prompts you to ponder life and its richness, that keeps you thinking after the credits end-- then go watch "Tuck Everlasting" ASAP!
