The film is based on the novel by Elionor Porter, now considered a classic of children’s literature. It was not easy for the girl Pollyanna. Becoming an orphan, she moves in with her aunt. Caught in a world of strict rules and prohibitions, finding herself alone in a foreign city and in a foreign home, Pollyanna does not despair. What helps her is the “Game of Joy,” once invented by her father. It’s simple: in any situation, under any circumstances, you have to find something good, something to rejoice in… and share that joy with others. Watch this film with your child and get a charge of cheerfulness and positivity. This film is about a real commitment to life, with a smile and light in your heart.
