Review by anonymous (posted on 30-Jun-2006)

Those of us who grew up with the Wonderful World of Disney's terrific Sunday night movies will remember this magical film for its likable cast (two of the main child actors also portrayed Jane and Michael Banks in Mary Poppins), gorgeous Scottish Highlands scenery, and heartwarming plot that unfolds for us through the narration of the title character, Thomasina the cat. Mary McDhui finds her pet near death and rushes him to her father, the village vet, but he's busy, brushes her off, and tells his assistant to put the cat out of its misery, he cannot save it. Of course, the story does not end there; in fact, it's just getting started. There's a beautiful "witch" in the glen, a child's broken heart, a widowed father's stoic front that masks his own sadness, and delightful, colorful characters throughout. Like me, you'll want to own this one and watch it with your children.
