Josh Hutcherson, AnnaSophia Robb, Robert Patrick, Zooey Deschanel
Based on Katherine Paterson’s children’s book, the coming-of-age tale follows two lonely fifth-graders (Hutcherson and Robb) who create a fantasy world where they can retreat from the unhappiness of their real lives. 94 minutes.
DVD INFO: Two separately packaged DVDs are available. One preserves the film in the anamorphic widescreen format, while the other hacks off nearly a third of the picture for the fullscreen (aka pan and scan) format. Shop carefully. Both editions include a commentary track with the director, writer, several cast members and the producer, featurettes, plus a music video by AnnaSophia Robb.
