Because of Winn-Dixie

Based on the Newbery Honor book, Because of Winn-Dixie is the heartwarming "tail" of a young girl named Opal (AnnaSophia Robb) whose life is changed by a scruffy, fun-loving pooch she names Winn-Dixie. Newly arrived in town, Opal has been struggling to meet friends when she adopts Winn-Dixie, who leads her into all sorts of unexpected places — and introduces her to people she would never otherwise meet.

The special bond between Opal and Winn-Dixie works magic on the eccentric townspeople she meets that unforgettable summer, but perhaps his greatest feat is helping her connect with her reserved dad (Jeff Daniels), finally mending the gap between them from when her mother abandoned them both. Heartfelt and full of wonder, this charming adaptation captures the way that an animal can bring people together when they need it most.

"Director Wayne Wang (Smoke, The Joy Luck Club) and a restrained script draw honest emotions from the actors and an eerie beauty from the Florida landscape; this one of the few family movies that captures the childhood sense that everyday life can be mystical" — Bret Fetzer, Reviews
