Mary's school, depicted in the film, "Howard School" is actually May Howard Elementary School, located at 115 Wilmington Island Road, Savannah, Georgia. The building shown in the movie was originally built in the 1950s to serve the growing suburb, Wilmington Island. During filming, a replacement school was under construction just south of the original school used in the film. The original building has since been demolished. See more »

the movie is fantastic. i absolutely love it and the acotrs and actresses are amazing, Mckenna Grace who plays Mary and Chris Evans who plays Frank is absolutely suited for the role. The young actress, Mckenna Grace is a very talented girl and actress, and Chris Evans is amazing as the Uncle role. They are so great with each other, that is was so touching when they were together. i believe that this movie will be one of the greatest in the world. I LOVE IT!
