    This old-fashioned mystery is solved by the kids, not the adults. The youngest cast member, Owen Pearce; wise beyond her years, Morgan Flynn; and newcomer to the screen, Chris Kelly, tug at the hearts of adults while providing adventure, action and entertainment for the younger crowd. You can take your entire family to this movie, with the assurance that no will be disappointed.

    Did you see it? A Plumm Summer? If not, I ask one question....Why not? It was adorable, funny and endearing. I gave you the highlights here, but I just wanted to remind you that previews continue this week.This heartwarming, coming-of-age, family film is simply delightful. In a society that has forgotten the innocence of youth comes a movie destined to render you nostalgic for the wholesomeness of days gone by. The kidnapping of local TV icon Froggy Doo brings healing and unity to a family broken by unrealized dreams, financial hardships, and alcoholism. Starring William Baldwin, Henry Winkler, and Jeff Daniels, this tender story, inspired by real events will touch your soul.

    A Plumm Summer is a treat for the senses. Beautifully shot in Montana and well cast. A touching family tale with some great comedic relief. Kid and adult friendly, better than I expected!!
