A young girl reveals how a little positive thinking can make a big difference.Every dark cloud has a silver lining--and young Pollyanna knows how to find it. Newcomer Georgina Terry makes a stirring debut as Pollyanna in this heartwarming tale of a little girl whose effortless charm captures the hearts of family, friends, and strangers alike. After the death of her father, Pollyanna moves in with her downcast, embittered aunt (Amanda Burton, Silent Witness). Soon, Pollyanna charms everyone in the beautiful English village she now calls home--except her cold-hearted aunt who refuses to see the brighter side of life. Aunt Polly, despite her vast wealth, impressive estate, and numerous servants, treats young Pollyanna more like an stranger than a relative, but when tragedy strikes, Pollyanna's sunny outlook persuades her aunt to confront past ghosts and embrace the promise of happiness. Based on the classic novel by Eleanor H. Porter, Pollyanna is a treat sure to be treasured by the entire family.

This is a movie that everyone would gain from, because Pollyanna shows us how to find good in all people and in severe difficulties in life. Pollyanna chooses to see the glass half full in all situations. Even curmudgeons and pessimists are able to learn from this child who is wise beyond her years.

Heart warming - very good ending -- as life would better be. An ideal world can be held in the heart but never realized.
