I just watched this with my 8 year old and 4 year old today. It is a good length (just under an hour) to watch for a family movie night with young kids. They both were very interested in the movie the entire time. My daughter was particularly interested in seeing this DVD because they have a series of the books at school that happen after they go live with their grandfather and play in the boxcar in the backyard. She didn't realize that there was a "before" were they actually lived in the boxcar and the adversity they had to overcome in order stay together and survive.
About the Film
Four orphaned and homeless siblings happen upon an abandoned boxcar, which with a little creativity and hard work, they gradually furnish with all the comforts of home. Fearful that they will be sent to live with the reputedly cruel grandfather they have never met, the children keep their new home a secret - until a serious illness forces them to reveal themselves in order to save young Violet.
