5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful movie! Sept. 18 2005
By J. Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Every member of the family should enjoy this movie. Skyler Day is superb as Ociee Nash, and I loved Anthony P. Rodriguez as Gypsy John Leon. Keith Carradine and Mare Winningham are also excellent in their roles. The story line is simple but interesting, with just enough tension to keep it from being too syrupy. The film makers did an excellent job of invoking early 20th century America, although if you look closely, you can see a few anachronisms that are out of place (these don't detract from the movie, but they're fun to look for).

This movie is well worth a look, definitely something different from the usual fare, and something for the whole family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't forget the book! July 20 2005
By Marc A. Jolley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The Adventures of Ociee Nash is a warm, wonderful movie for family entertainment. Boys and girls will thoroughly enjoy this beautifully directed and produced film. Parents will be glad that there is a child-friendly movie that they can watch with their kids.

Ociee Nash is a precocious child who survives life's most traumatic event with adventure, fun, and optimism.

And don't forget to read the book that this film is based on by Milam Propst: A Flower Blooms on Charlotte Street (and its sequel, Ociee on Her Own).

The McGary Sisters directed and produced their screen adaptation. Their love of this film shows on every frame.

Note: I saw the movie when it was released in select theaters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine film for all the family Sept. 23 2005
By Stephen Fesenmaier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This film was extremely well done and a real treat for both my wife and I. In the classic Disney style, the lives of 19th century Americans are portrayed in a heart warming way. Ociee is a young girl facing puberty after living her life as a tomboy. Her adventures are very touching - I had to think of a young female Forest Gump. Everyone who sees this film will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Adventures of Ociee Nash July 8 2006
By D. Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
My daughter recieved this DVD as a gift. We live in Asheville, NC and have a grandmother named Josephine so it was very touching. We loved the movie, and plan to order several copies as gifts for other little girls. It's great to have a little girl as a hero who is attractive, yet not living the stereotype that girls have to be focused on their personal appearance rather than their spirit and integrity.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great kid's movie June 2 2006
By B. Dey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think the one-star review above is a bit harsh. This is a kid's movie after all, not the latest Charlie Kaufman mind trip.

As a kid's movie, Ociee Nash works exceedingly well. This is exactly the kind of spirited-away adventure a young girl would love, and it has much to say about building personal strength and developing as an individual, while also showing that even the most difficult people offer something we can learn from. Ociee Nash also has a very positive message about being a woman in a man's world. It's refreshing to find a movie with a classic Disney innocence that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

As mentioned in the above review, the camera work is brilliant, and I agree that in the first few scenes, the acting is a bit stilted, but as the movie progresses, the kids get comfortable with their roles and a wonderful story emerges. Also excellent is the music, the set design, the acting of the secondary talent and the direction. You'd have to have a cold heart not to find something to enjoy about this fresh and wonderful film.
