Young Winnie Foster, stifled by the formality of her proper life and domineering mother, escapes into the woods only to get lost. Soon she happens upon Jesse Tuck — a boy full of life and adventure who's unlike anyone she's ever met — and falls in love. The Tucks are a kind and generous family, but they have a powerful secret: a spring that holds the magic of everlasting life. Winnie thinks it's a wonder, but Jesse's parents Angus and Mae tell her that immortality is more painful than it seems.
When a man comes searching for the Tucks' secret, disaster strikes, threatening to reveal everything. Winnie helps the Tucks escape, but Jesse begs her to stay with him. Now Winnie must choose: live life as she knows it or drink from the spring. Walt Disney Pictures' Tuck Everlasting, based on the book by Natalie Babbitt, is a timeless and enchanting adventure about one girl's magical summer that will captivate audiences of any age. It's a life-affirming adventure that will cast its irresistible spell over you again and again.
"With the makings of a classic, Disney's Tuck Everlasting compares favorably with such family favorites as The Secret Garden and Fairy Tale: A True Story.... Director Jay Russell turns Tuck Everlasting into a magical plea for living life to its fullest." — Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com Reviews
