Movie Reviews

Don't forget the book!
Marc A. Jolley | Macon, Georgia USA | 07/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Adventures of Ociee Nash is a warm, wonderful movie for family entertainment. Boys and girls will thoroughly enjoy this beautifully directed and produced film. Parents will be glad that there is a child-friendly movie that they can watch with their kids.
Ociee Nash is a precocious child who survives life's most traumatic event with adventure, fun, and optimism.
And don't forget to read the book that this film is based on by Milam Propst: A Flower Blooms on Charlotte Street (and its sequel, Ociee on Her Own).
The McGary Sisters directed and produced their screen adaptation. Their love of this film shows on every frame.
Note: I saw the movie when it was released in select theaters.
A fine film for all the family

"This film was extremely well done and a real treat for both my wife and I. In the classic Disney style, the lives of 19th century Americans are portrayed in a heart warming way. Ociee is a young girl facing puberty after living her life as a tomboy. Her adventures are very touching - I had to think of a young female Forest Gump. Everyone who sees this film will enjoy it."
A wonderful movie!

"Every member of the family should enjoy this movie. Skyler Day is superb as Ociee Nash, and I loved Anthony P. Rodriguez as Gypsy John Leon. Keith Carradine and Mare Winningham are also excellent in their roles. The story line is simple but interesting, with just enough tension to keep it from being too syrupy. The film makers did an excellent job of invoking early 20th century America, although if you look closely, you can see a few anachronisms that are out of place (these don't detract from the movie, but they're fun to look for).

This movie is well worth a look, definitely something different from the usual fare, and something for the whole family."
