Synopsis

Eleven-year-old Caddie Woodlawn and her family live on the Wisconsin frontier in 1865. Caddie’s mother hopes that a summer visit from fashionable and well-mannered cousin Annabelle from Boston will encourage tomboy Caddie to become more of a refined lady. However, Caddie feels she and Annabelle have little in common. Meanwhile, Caddie is disturbed by a growing community hatred and mistrust of the peaceful Dakota Indians who live nearby. When false rumors against the Dakotas cause an uprising, and a mob threatens to attack the Dakotas’ village, Caddie makes a courageous effort to save her Indian friends. Her actions help many to consider the cost of their prejudice and intolerance.

Dove Review

This movie is awesome! Caddie and her mother really get to know each other and they both learn an important lesson: never be afraid to be kind to other people, no matter whom they are; and if anyone criticizes you for that, just turn the other cheek and carry on. This movie is great for both kids and adults. Caddie shows true kindness and courage throughout the movie. There are funny parts and tearjearker moments, making this a great family movie.
