2005 Certificate: u


After moving to a small Florida town with her preacher father, a lonely young girl adopts a stray dog. Blind 'witch' Gloria (Tyson), grumpy landlord Alfred (B J Hopper), reclusive librarian Miss Franny (Eva Marie Saint), ex-jailbird Otis (Matthews) and even Daddy (Daniels) and the awful Dewberry boys - all are converted to Opal's belief in sharing joy as well as sadness.
