This is a must-see movie. It was originally released in 1999, however the story is timeless. Based on the biography of Willie Morris, the story takes place in 1940 in a little town on the banks of the Yazoo River. It's a tale of a boy and his dog, inseparable companions who share in the most wonderful adventures until Willie, played by Frankie Muniz, heads off to college. The cast also includes Diane Lane and Kevin Bacon as Willie's parents. The film also stars "Eddie" from "Frasier" fame as Skip. I recommend this movie to everyone. I guarantee it will make you laugh and cry.
