Comment: Funny fantasy film (novel by Jerdine Nolen). Small girl Mara Wilson as Willow Johnson (left picture) wears blue bibs, Adam Wylie (nominated here for a Young Artist Award) in grey bibs. Also a girl in red bibs! Also other men (farmers) and I think at least one other kid (boy?). Good plot and I like farm films. But I remember no boy in blue bibs. Main character is Johnson, and she does not always wearing bibs or is it a shirt over them later? No trailers to be embedded. Wilson also starred in Roald Dahl’s Matilda. Good film, but girl is too young and I don’t like Wylie. Also short scenes. So only rating 4-5. Update: Needs rechecking. Wylie I like much more now. Probably rating 6+. New tag Sitting M.

One more pic of Wylie walking:


Pic 1 showing Willow in shortalls, but she also wore shortalls in the 2nd half. Also some more boys and girls in bibs. New tags: shortalls, Sitting F.
