The show isn’t so saccharine that it is unbearable, but there are no murders or worldwide catastrophes in it. There is conflict, but easily a family flick

France makes the best icecream
When Reith (Mark Addy) dies his three children bury him at sea and run away from their uncle Blythe (Lee Boardman) who recently got out of prison. The oldest daughter Angie (Molly Windsor) has an expensive family relic that Blythe believes he should own. The three children and two donkeys travel the back roads cross country to visit their mom (Tara Fitzgerald) relying on the kindness of strangers.

Not a lot of action. Kids talking about life and sleeping under the stars. Not a bad film. Could be worse. It could have Kristen Stewart in it.

Guide: No swearing, sex, or nudity.
