A freckled-faced girl with an uncommonly upbeat outlook on life gladdens the hearts of viewers in an uplifting new adaptation of Eleanor H. Porter's 1913 children's classic, Pollyanna. Eleven-year-old Georgina Terry stars as Pollyanna Whittier, an orphan sent to live with her gloomy Aunt Polly, played by Amanda Burton (Forgotten). Pollyanna, a master at finding the silver lining in the most threatening of storms, encounters her greatest challenge against pessimism.
