Editorial Reviews

Skyler Day stars as Ociee Nash, a spirited nine-year-old from rural Mississippi. Ociee's idyllic life is thrown into a tailspin when she's sent to live with her Aunt Mamie to become a "young lady". Ociee's true bravery, character, and spirit are put to the test in this uplifting family drama.

Every member of the family should enjoy this movie. Skyler Day is superb as Ociee Nash, and I loved Anthony P. Rodriguez as Gypsy John Leon. Keith Carradine and Mare Winningham are also excellent in their roles. The story line is simple but interesting, with just enough tension to keep it from being too syrupy. The film makers did an excellent job of invoking early 20th century America, although if you look closely, you can see a few anachronisms that are out of place (these don't detract from the movie, but they're fun to look for).

This movie is well worth a look, definitely something different from the usual fare, and something for the whole family.

The Adventures of Ociee Nash is a warm, wonderful movie for family entertainment. Boys and girls will thoroughly enjoy this beautifully directed and produced film. Parents will be glad that there is a child-friendly movie that they can watch with their kids.

Ociee Nash is a precocious child who survives life's most traumatic event with adventure, fun, and optimism.

And don't forget to read the book that this film is based on by Milam Propst: A Flower Blooms on Charlotte Street (and its sequel, Ociee on Her Own).

The McGary Sisters directed and produced their screen adaptation. Their love of this film shows on every frame.

Note: I saw the movie when it was released in select theaters.

This film was extremely well done and a real treat for both my wife and I. In the classic Disney style, the lives of 19th century Americans are portrayed in a heart warming way. Ociee is a young girl facing puberty after living her life as a tomboy. Her adventures are very touching - I had to think of a young female Forest Gump. Everyone who sees this film will enjoy it.

My daughter recieved this DVD as a gift. We live in Asheville, NC and have a grandmother named Josephine so it was very touching. We loved the movie, and plan to order several copies as gifts for other little girls. It's great to have a little girl as a hero who is attractive, yet not living the stereotype that girls have to be focused on their personal appearance rather than their spirit and integrity.

I think the one-star review above is a bit harsh. This is a kid's movie after all, not the latest Charlie Kaufman mind trip.

As a kid's movie, Ociee Nash works exceedingly well. This is exactly the kind of spirited-away adventure a young girl would love, and it has much to say about building personal strength and developing as an individual, while also showing that even the most difficult people offer something we can learn from. Ociee Nash also has a very positive message about being a woman in a man's world. It's refreshing to find a movie with a classic Disney innocence that can be enjoyed by the entire family.

As mentioned in the above review, the camera work is brilliant, and I agree that in the first few scenes, the acting is a bit stilted, but as the movie progresses, the kids get comfortable with their roles and a wonderful story emerges. Also excellent is the music, the set design, the acting of the secondary talent and the direction. You'd have to have a cold heart not to find something to enjoy about this fresh and wonderful film.

Skylar Day is a great little actress easily equal to Hayley Mills (given the right vehicle). However, "The Adventures of Ociee Nash" is not the right vehicle to showcase her talents. This story is somewhat empty, leaving the viewer frustrated; hoping for a real story similar to Polyanna. If you watch Polyanna, or Anne Of Green Gables, you will see just how poor this story is by comparrison. The music is not very good. It is very loud throughout most of the story and off cue in every respect. The acting of Ociee's father is not believable or realistic. The directing is somewhat poor. I did enjoy seeing Ociee whip the sissy girl in her new neighborhood, and the train ride was very nice. Overall, this movie missed a good chance to become something really special. However, after watching it again two or three more times - I discover that the movie is entertaining and fun - entirely owing to Skylar Day... she is just wonderful. MY 77 year old mother loved this movie! This caused me to upgrade my original review; rating same from 3 to 4 stars. Too bad Skylar Day has grown up by now and cannot deliver more movies at this younger age. I wonder what has become of her?

I would suppose a girl from 7-9 years old would consider this a 5 star movie. For the rest of us it is a three at best.

Ociee lives in rural Mississippi with her dad and two brothers. They have very bad Southern country accents and sayings like, "I am going to tell you children a story on myself." There is also the over use of the word, "dang." Ociee is a 9 year old Tom boy. She meets a gypsy played by a Mexican with what appears to be a French accent. Her father sends her off to Asheville to live with Aunt Mamie in order to learn girl stuff.

On her train ride she meets famous and would-be famous people in Forrest Gump style (Nellie Bly, Pres. McKinley, Wright Brothers.) In Asheville she meets some boys named Vanderbilt. In the end her Tomboy ways save the day. This movie has potential.

If bad acting and bad accents don't bother you, you might want to watch it with the kids. Of all of the famous people Ociee meets, Nellie Bly is without a doubt the most fascinating.
