Kid Days at the Woods Hole Film Festival
July 27, 2014
THE BOXCAR CHILDREN is based on one of the best selling children's books of all time! A touching tale of family togetherness targeted to kids ages four to twelve.
The film explores themes of personal integrity, generosity and kindness. Meet Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny, four orphaned brothers and sisters who mysteriously appear in a small town on a warm summer night. No one knows who these young wanderers are or where they have come from. The children make a home for themselves in an abandoned boxcar they discover in the woods. The children make a happy life for themselves, discovering the struggles and rewards of independence until one day they must reveal their secret and risk discovery by the one person they fear the most.
