A powerfully emotional award-winning novel about the ways we save each other.
London is poised on the brink of World War II. Eight-year-old Willie Beech is evacuated to the English countryside and lands on Thomas Oakley’s doorstep, timid and scarred from abuse. Mr. Tom, a gruff but kindly old man, is deeply moved for the boy, treating him with a gentleness he’s forgotten he’s even capable of. With Mr. Tom’s help, Willie forgets his hateful past and learns to love a world he never knew existed, a world of friendship and affection and joy.
But then a telegram comes, and Willie is ordered to return to London. When weeks pass without word from him, Mr. Tom sets out for London to once again rescue the boy he’s come to love as a son.

I knew nothing about the movie before ordering from Netflix, and later found that it has won numerous important honors in the industry.
Oh, how I miss John Thaw!!!
Obviously a lot was left out that was in the book and sometimes it seemed a bit disjointed but John Thaw can do no wrong in my eyes and he really made the film. There was a real feel of the time, from the clothing to the housing and vehicles in use.
A bittersweet story. Watch the film and then find a copy of the book. You won't regret it.
