||Very charming movie|
The idea may be a bit farfetched, but this is a very charming movie. I'm a born and bred Southerner, and some of the accents are a bit fake, but this is a great movie--very entertaining. I love it.

Children on their Birthdays DVD for sale The thing is that every scene in this movie is a distinct surprise. Children on their Birthdays movie The startling happenings are the opposite of what you expected: For here's a sleepy southern town in summertime and everything seems quite ordinary except that... suddenly... a little slip of a girl arrives with her mama and the girl takes over with the aplomb and confidence of a queen. And everyone else in the cast is a joy to watch, as all are captivated by Miss Lily. It is so "everyday" yet so unusual in its simplicity. This movie peaks the imagination. Here's a tale of bygone days, a story with many twists and turns, daring to give the viewer a glimpse of racism that pervades the very walls of a place of worship! Little wonder that when the credits roll onto the screen, we discover the tale is based on a story written by the immortal Truman Capote! And because it is simply told by "TRU, the "master", it beguiles and fascinates and touches the heart with some of life's greatest lessons. To think we nearly missed it! Plucked it off the video shelves as a lark, slid it into the VCR slot, sat back in the armchairs and... abracadabra, were richly rewarded with a movie whose praises have been largely unsung. LB in Amherst, New York.
