A beautiful work of art!

What I liked about this movie was the way the little girl narrated throughout the entire movie, the relationship between Hollis and Josie and the family that became her "forever family". This is the story of a little girl abandoned on the same street corner as her name who goes from one foster care family to another. She arrives at the home of Josie and Henry the cat with a huge chip on her shoulder. The little girl is a talented artist and Josie creates sculptures out of wood. Josie is a very loving caregiver but she forgets things and eventually fails to take care of the little girl sufficiently. There is also a back story that is slowly revealed. When the social worker tells Hollis she must be placed in yet another home she convinces Josie to leave and they set off on a journey to a place Hollis had been to before and loved. Unfortunately Josie's health is failing but this story ends well. It is a very beautiful but sad at times story. Whomever cast this little girl is a genius. She has such sad eyes. What I did not like is how the children at school pick on her. That is such a sad event. The story has a good message and a very lovely ending. Enjoy. This is a good family movie. Very clean and enjoyable.

I first saw the actress Jodelle Ferland in Silent Hill and have watched her grow up on the movie and TV screen. This is my absolute favorite! She is very convincing and the story is great!

Great Movie
Verified purchase
This is a delightfully sad story about some very real (or realistic) dilemmas dealing with not just real life, but the possibilities real life has to offer that we ignore, and some real problems that need to be addressed, again, that we sometimes ignore. I bought the movie to surprise my child, who started reading the book. While watching the movie, she told me that she really didn't like the book, so stopped reading halfway. She loved the movie, and was even telling me the events that the story either left out or were leading toward.

Wonderful Story
Verified purchase
This does have several scratches on it but still plays well. I enjoyed this so much on the Hallmark Hall of Fame
that I wanted my own copy. I do think that Goodwill Industries charged way to much for shipping, as they shipped
the two that i ordered separately, at 5.99 each. But then from what I understand they are no longer a charitable
organization but an all for profit sad!.
