Because of Winn-Dixie DVD Review

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.

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
