Pay It Forward 2000
Imagine that you do someone a favour and ask that person to thank not you, but three other people, who in turn thank three others, and so on, spreading warmth and kindness around the world. How effective would an idea like this be? 11-year-old Trevor McKinney decided to put it to the test by starting his chain of kindness. Somewhere childishly naive, somewhere overly optimistic, but still an incredibly kind film with an ending that will make you think.
This is the story of an 11 year old girl, Pollyanna, who, after the death of her parents, is forced to live at her grumpy aunt’s house. The game that her father taught her just before his death helps her to be optimistic about any situation, even the most unpleasant: she has to find the good in every situation. This perception of the world by Pollyanna initially frightens and angers those around her, but as time passes, their lives start to change for the better.
