Plot Outline:

A young boy lives with his parents on a pioneer farm in Florida. While his father is warm and open, his mother is distant, still haunted by the death of her other children during the Civil War. When his father must kill a doe, he asks to keep the fawn as a pet and is granted permission, but as the deer grows and begins to show its untamed nature, the boy must face adult realities. -- Chris Kavan

Rating of

A poignant coming-of-age story becomes a touching family film with breath-taking scenery and strong performances. Especially the multiple trained deer that play Flag the mischievous fawn. Warning though about the bittersweet ending, it's not for the faint of heart or those who hated the ending of Old Yeller.

A beautiful movie, and original in its distinctive story telling. Claude Jarman, Jr. deserves his reputation as one of the best young actors in movie history. The whole cast is wonderful, and the direction original and top notch.
