Movie Reviews

This Movie Makes History Come Alive!
ruffguy | 11/23/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know where to begin but this movie is going to be a new classic for kids...move over Sounder, Anne of Green Gables, Treasure Island....I was entranced. The actors in the movie are fabulous... I found myself making comments aloud about their acting throughout the film. The themes are timeless and ones in which we can all relate. The costumes are wonderful...I was taken back in time and couldn't leave my TV to even get a drink and I studied every detail of the dresses, hair, shoes, and makeup. If you think history is boring, watch this all will change for you and you'll realize that we all aren't so different afterall."
Factual just like I remember it!

"I Love this movie and ordered a gift copy to my sister who still lives in a small Louisiana town. You probably have to be a Southernor to appreciate all the nuances in this movie. For instance, no one actually refers to Aunt Dora as a prostitute, but it is alluded to in text and body language, the Southern way. To be fully aware, keep on your toes and observe to catch all the implications. Remember, most folks did not have a big income, a car, and they were not merchandise junkies, yet. I lived during this time and I found this movie to be authentic and factual including the food bounty at this country home, the friendships of both races, the love of the outdoors. Enjoy!"

"This is a genuinely heartwarming story. As a Southerner, I can vouch for its authenticity, its "realness." The portrayals of the central characters, especially Tiger, are true and done with love.
This is a great story for the young. It's equally great for those who aren't so young, but remember."
An endearing movie

"This movie is wonderful. If you love Anne of Green Gables, this is the movie for you. Growing up with a disabled mother myself, I completely realated to the young girl. I couldn't stop crying all the way through. The ending left me wanting more. We just got a brief snipit of the lives of the characters. I would definitely welcome a sequel. It is just a heart-warming movie that I think all would enjoy. Oh and by the way, you don't have to be a southern to appreciate it."
