With the help of a wise and mysterious maid, Willie May (Queen Latifah), and the stubborn new girl in school (Madalen Mills), he navigates through childhood memories, heartache, and wondrous adventures in this heartwarming adaptation.

I was sent an early screener to watch this movie before it is available on DVD/Digital. (It’s available Tuesday, February 8, 2022.) This is based on the best-selling book by the author who also wrote Because of Winn Dixie and The Tale of Desperaux. This movie is sad. Normally, I love a good family drama, but this one seemed too sad to show my kids; I’ll show them later. I liked it – especially Queen Latifah. She did a fabulous job as Willie May. Her guidance and wisdom in the movie was great. I hadn’t seen Christian Convery in a movie before but he is a great actor. I really enjoyed watching him as Rob Horton. The themes of being caged, being free, and finding family outside your immediate family all resonated well with me.
