Though I loved the original movie, this new one is more closely aligned with the novel -- no names for the family members, a male teacher befriends Boy, Father dies (and Boy discovers his body), Sounder dies. The first video, by comparison, was a little sugar-coated in that the video ends with Father and family cheerfully seeing Boy off to school. The new video is also beautifully done, as was the first, but I appreciate how it is more faithful to the original story. Loved them both!
