Storyline

Jesse is picked on at school and had no friends until Leslie, the new girl, befriends him and they begin to come really close. They use their imaginations and create a world called Terebithia, only for the wonderful fantasy to end in disaster, tragedy and loss. But it's up to Jesse to remember what Leslie taught him and to stay happy.

One of those few movies that made me cry.
23 September 2019 | by ismamuzzamanSee all my reviews

This movie is like a happy memory from my childhood. I had seen it once when I was very young and today, as a 20 year old. And honestly, I cried both the times. As a child, I learned what imagination was from this movie. And now, I acknowledge how much freedom I had as a child. This may not have been the best movie ever made, or the best movie I have ever seen, but whenever I will see this movie, I know it will remind me of some of the best memories from my childhood, and remind me how much I should cherish those memories.
