One has the sense that the boys like her because she is unusual, because they are young enough to be taken in a little bit by her put-on glamour, and also because they want to help her. She is very much the same character as Holly Go-Lightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's, another short story by Truman Capote that was made into a movie, and another story that was made less gritty in the film version.
It is unrealistic when Lila's outburst in church causes people to reconsider restricting the black members of the congregation to the balcony, as the adults would have been more likely to scold her and rationalize away her concerns, but I still found her righteous indignation heartening. The character of Lily is not too perfect to be real however - her first attempt to bridge the racial divide in her community is not as successful.Read more ›
I bought the movie despite it did not fair well in the box office, which I feel is due to limited showings. Anyway the main character, Lilly Jane is hilarious. This was a pleasant and family oriented movie that adults and children can enjoy. A great movie to watch over holidays or days that children have to stay indoors. Give the movie a viewing. I think it is needed in this day of violent, sex, and objectional material placed in front of innocent children.

I love this movie. I saw it once on Cinemax then couldn't find it anywhere. Set in the South in the 60's. The lead girl is a virtual unknown who is phenomenal. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Tom Holland PA

Great story from the late 40's and not just that, but any baby boomer can relate to this comedy/drama of growing up in this post WW2 era. The acting is superb. Read morePublished 24 months ago by Jefferson Brown
This movie is so heart warming. Parents should sit with their children age 7 to 11 and watch it with them. There's so many messages in this movie. Read morePublished on March 24, 2014 by LunaLady
