This was a great little movie. You weren't sure where it was going or how it would turn out after the obvious beginning and it just got better. Had me in tears at the end. Highly recommend to anyone who wants movie that is JUST shy two hours in length (missed it by 9 minutes). Don't see very many movies that are clean, entertaining AND last more than an hour and a half without commercials.

Great family film. When a foster child is befriended by an older woman they run away and join the circus and find true friends. I loved this movie and highly recommend.

This is a wonderful family movie that I really enjoyed. When a little boy runs away and joins the circus he finds a family that loves him and one that wants him.
