Harriet meets a man named Bernard and begin a courtship, but Carrie is furious that her mother is dating Bernard and wants it to stop. The jealousy and anger of Carrie raises to a fever pitch when Carrie and her friends destroy their neighbor Mr. Grizzle's garden and pour sugar into his tractor.

coming of age circa 1947
1 December 2006 | by knicknamejSee all my reviews

All right, I loved this little movie. I had no expectations (by surprise on cable, Showtime, one early morning) and was impressed by the fantastic work of the stellar cast as well as the period look. This is a film to Tivo and watch with the whole family (about 9 and older). Now that I'm posting this review and see that others have dismissed it. I don't understand. Sure it's not funny, but it has a great message about the power of love and it goes back to simpler, beautiful time. Penelope Ann Miller is Amazing. And what ever happened to the lead girl, Ashley Rose Orr? She is a real find. I loved Kevin Anderson in a very complicated part and David Basche is Handsome and makes you care about a character who on the surface seems like a jerk. This seemed like a low budget movie, but it looks great and really captures the time. Kudos all around to the crew and cast.
