America is in the depths of the Great Depression. Families drift apart when faraway jobs beckon. In this masterful, atmospheric adventure, a courageous young girl (Meredith Salenger) confronts overwhelming odds when she embarks on a cross-country search for her father. During her extraordinary odyssey, she forms a close bond with two diverse traveling companions: a magnificent, protective wolf, and a hardened drifter (John Cusack). A brilliant, moving tapestry, woven of courage and perseverance.

Pretty good. Interesting. Era of the Waltons. Hard times and difficult situations. This is an interesting and fun way to depict how things were. It is dark at times and for the most part works its way through rather than rushing.

An average movie. The acting is good, but the story is a bit too forced and formulaic. The romance was beyond me, but I think that was largely because I kept seeing Cusack as older than he actually was. Kids that like adventure stories may enjoy this. Parents concerned with content should be aware that for a PG-movie (especially one from 1985) this movie has quite a few cuss words and disturbing scenes.

Average movie. Underwhelming overacting by respectable actors. Feelgood Disney swill. Don't tackle the depression, Disney. Stick to lighter fare please or risk making a mockery of a very significant and serious historical period. Has it's moments if you ignore it's faults with forced emotional peaks and valleys.

A wholesome little story of a tomboy and her dog (oops -- wolf) riding the rails west during The Great Depression, in search of her dad. Really sweet, like the Disney of yore. With Scatman Crothers and a young John Cusack.
