Set in the early 1900s, this is a sweet fantasy starring Sissy Spacek, William Hurt and Ben Kingsley. Within its poetic, almost Ray Bradbury-esque fairy tale, a young girl gets lost in the woods, and discovers a family of immortals. She falls in love with the younger son and has to choose her future... Sentimental but not too sickly, it's great for teenage girls.
