i watched this movie with parents and kids and it was refreshing to see a film that was entertaining and appropriate for all ages. There were a few weepy parents and lots of enraptured kids - best for those over the age of about 8. Lovely and inspiring storyline without be too “motherhood and apple-pie”.
Good acting and not too long for those with short attention spans.
Strongly recommend for the family!
