After the death of her father, Pollyanna moves in with her embittered aunt. Soon, she charms everyone in the village she now calls home--except her cold-hearted aunt who refuses to see the brighter side of life. Aunt Polly, despite her vast wealth treats Pollyanna more like an stranger than a relative, but when tragedy strikes, Pollyanna's sunny outlook persuades her aunt to confront past ghosts and embrace the promise of happiness.

    Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Pollyanna DVD (U.K. Edition):

    Interestingly, the book's setting, New England, is not replicated in either Disney's or this version. This English version is much more nuanced than the earlier movie. Even in his best work, Disney tended to rely too much on caricature and to lapse into preachy sentiment.
    By contrast, the U.K. movie seemed to have no minor characters. Everything operates at a high level: acting and cinematography, as well as humor and dramatic tension. I consider it a classic.

      Heartwarming Family Film

      Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Pollyanna DVD (U.K. Edition):

      This is a delightful and touching film of an orphan girl who captures the hearts of the townspeople with her kindness and optimistic attitude and changes the lives of some embittered people in the process. The performances are wonderful, and the story is set in the beautiful English countryside. It is refreshing to watch entertainment that is wholesome and promotes upbuilding values. Perhaps the film could have been lengthened, for it seems that it ended a bit soon.
