Based on the best selling children's book, Because Of Winn-Dixie tells the story of Opal, a lonely young girl who adopts an orphaned dog and names him Winn-Dixie (after the supermarket where she found him). The bond between Opal and her special companion brings together the people in a small Florida town and heals her own troubled relationship with her father.

Winn-Dixie guides Opal into places where magic dozes under a coat of dusty disappointment and awakens the people hiding there. Things begin to change day by day under the summer sun - in a funky pet store, a musty library, a drab mobile home, a ramshackle house and a convenience store-turned temple of worship.

What the critics are saying:

"A simple, slow-moving, shaggy-dog story that has enough charm to keep us involved but not enough dramatic tension to rise above the ordinary."
- Paula Nechak, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"It has old-fashioned and heartwarming written all over it, in heavy black Magic Marker."
- Anita Gates, New York Times

"To Winn-Dixie's great credit, both as a book and as a dandy, dignified movie, there's nothing condescendingly lesson-like in the wisdom India acquires."
- Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

This heart-warming, small town tale about a girl and her dog is the perfect movie for the whole family to enjoy.

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
