A ten year-old girl lives a lonely life, until she meets a loveable pooch who makes her forget how to be sad. Read on for Kidzworld's review of Because of Winn-Dixie.

Because of Winn-Dixie - A Lonely Town

India "Opal" Buloni (played by Annasophia Robb) is a preacher's daughter whose life is surrounded by disappointment and heartbreak. She's grieving over the loss of her mother, who left her when she was only three years old, has a troubled relationship with her father, and finds it hard to fit in with the local kids, who've nicknamed her Baloney Breath. Everything changes when she adopts a stray dog and names him after the supermarket where she finds him. Together, they set off to bring some spice into their dull town.

Because of Winn-Dixie - The Magic of Friendship

Opal, who doesn't have any friends, realizes the townspeople are just as lonely as she is. With Winn-Dixie by her side, she begins to let go of her sadness and helps heal other peoples' pain, from Otis (played by singer Dave Matthews), an ex-convict, to Gloria Dump, a blind woman who everyone thinks is a witch. The special bond between Opal and her goofy dog helps heal her relationship with her dad and teaches everyone the meaning of friendship - and it all happens because of Winn-Dixie.

    Will You Watch Winn-Dixie?

    • Yeah, I can't wait to see Dave Matthews act!
    • Maybe, if there's nothing better in the theatres.
    • No way, I hate movies about animals.
