The tale, set in rural, Depressionera Georgia and directed by actress Diane Keaton, has the timelessness of a fairy tale or a parable. It's almost biblical in its simplicity.

Reese With- Derspoon plays 13-year-old Ellie Perkins, a neighbor who discovers the grimy, half-wild girl locked away in a chicken coop. She is unwashed, illiterate, and barely capable of speech. Ellie and her 18-year-old brother, Sammy (William McNamara), befriend Alice, against the vehement wishes of their father, Jack (Beau Bridges, in a masterly performance), a widower still locked in the grief of his loss. They help Alice emerge from her ignorance and isolation, and when conflict looms with Alice's father, papa Jack is forced out of his own emotional isolation. At the same time, young Sammy realizes that his unsophisticated red tones. friend is rapidly becoming a beauti"I didn't want to see much blue, ful woman, and he doesn't quite because I felt like I wanted to just know what to make of his feelings. sink into this world of green, and beSara Flanigan's teleplay, based ing caught up in the woods, and the on her books, treats these kinds of romance of that," she said.
