Entertaining family fare
2 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Oddball is, if a bit formulaic, well done and rewarding.

The intertwined elements of family-love, nature's treasures and a heartwarming dog combine for our pleasure.

The location of the story is one of magical beauty.

The characters are well-drawn and believable.

The fact that it's based on a true story makes it even more special.
