Reviews
Mine: Flawed but interesting. Some overly dramatic stuff. Beatiful looking.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Growing up isn't easy for a brother and sister in 1970 Mississippi; their father means well, but hasn't been stable since returning from Vietnam, and his attempts to teach them tolerance and peaceful ways are hard to absorb when they're constantly bullied by a family of mean-spirited kids who live nearby. Well-intentioned message film for young people, but its poignant moments are diluted by overlength, a lack of focus, and an overabundance of dramatic climaxes.
