Dripping with Disney sentimentality, yet also benefiting from the studio's customarily impeccable production values, this TV movie will probably prove more popular with grandparents than youngsters. That's because it's set in the immediate postwar period when families were reunited and austerity was briefly forgotten.
However young Hayley Carr has nothing to celebrate for, having spent the war in the States, she no longer feels she belongs in Blighty, especially as mother Hayley Mills is more preoccupied with her husband's homecoming.
Decently played by a cast of familiar faces and directed by Scot Piers Haggard, this has the comforting sweetness of a good mint humbug.
