A very well made movie about things people seem to have forgotten. Unfortunately it will likely pass into cinema's unappreciated past.

Very interesting storyline with some uncommon quirks thrown in. Captures the viewers attention with its subtle imaginative nuances.

Meryl and Jack are as expected marvelous. The supporting cast equally great. The story line is valid. Even though it is set in the late 1930's. . this film should be seen by all students 12 years and above.
