Goodnight Mr Tom | ★★★★★★★★

This beautifully told Masterpiece Theatre episode from 1998 showed up in our mail box this week.
I loved the story and thought that it was both compelling and inspirational. It centers around an embittered man who finds new life as he takes in a young war refugee who's evacuated to his village during the London blitz. The beautiful transformation of this older man as he loves this young boy is so heartwarming. And the metamorphosis of the young boy from an abused child to a healthy young boy is simply spectacular. If you enjoy positive movies that speaks to and moves your heart then I suggest that you give this ninety minute masterpiece a try.
On a scale of ten I give this movie ★★★★★★★★.

  1. Have you ever read the book? It was one of my favorites as a kid/adolescent and I've re-read it a number of times. It's a worthwhile read!
