Review by Sandra Price (posted on 12-Aug-2007)
One of my favorite movies ever. (Haven't seen the silent
version.) Well-written and directed, this if the first movie with
Widmark in a good-guy role. Themes woven into the movie include: coming
of age for the young boy aging concerns for the grandfather the
appropriateness of sea-life for a boy confrontations with local
authorities. The most important conflict is the love the boy has for his
teacher and his love for his grandfather. Great as a family movie, but
an all-around great movie.
Do you know something we don't?
