Synopsis

A Dog of Flanders
Based on a novel written in 1872, this charming tale of a young boy and his dog is leisurely and heart-warming. Nello (David Ladd) and his grandfather Daas (Donald Crisp) manage to make ends meet by delivering milk from the nearby farms to the city of Antwerp. Nello's most deeply felt ambition is to follow in the footsteps of the greatest Flemish artists but his grandfather has little faith in Nello's ability to make a living with brush and canvas. Inevitably, Daas passes away and Nello ekes out a living as they always did, accompanied by his cart dog. One day Nello and his canine friend meet Piet (Theodore Bikel), a reclusive artist whose muse has not been constant of late. The combination of young boy, talented artist, and loyal canine then begins to exert its own chemistry, to everyone's benefit. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Sounder
Martin Ritt's big-screen adaptation of William H. Armstrong's Newberry Award winning novel, Sounder stars Cicely Tyson, Paul Winfield, and Kevin Hooks as a black family struggling through life in depression-era Louisiana. The Morgan family is poor, but close. Young son David (Hooks) enjoys hunting with his father Nathan (Paul Winfield) and his trusted dog Sounder. Eventually, they fall on such rough times that Nathan steals a loaf of bread to feed his family, but he is arrested and sentenced to a work camp. Mother Rebecca (Tyson) realizes that David is now responsible for taking care of the family. He sets out to locate where his father is being held, and becomes involved in a school for black children where he learns facts that give him a new level of self-esteem. Sounder was nominated for a variety of Academy Awards, including Best Picture. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Finn on the Fly
Unable to make friends after enrolling in a new school, a lonesome schoolboy finds that things start to look up after his loyal border collie gets mixed up in a wacky science experiment. Ben may not be the best when it comes to making new friends. Thankfully, he's got his lovable border collie Finn to keep him company in the meantime. There's no question that Finn is a bit more outgoing than Ben, and when the adventurous canine gets transformed into a bonafide human being with a penchant for chasing Frisbees, both boy and beast alike find their lives transformed in ways neither could have ever imagined. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

A Dog's Tale
A lonely young boy's wish for the perfect companion goes hilariously awry in this family-friendly tale that urges viewers not only to be careful what they wish for -- but also how they wish it! When a mysterious professor arrives in town and informs young Tim that a legendary supernova with the power to grant a single wish is set to appear in the night sky, the young boy is certain that he will finally be granted the canine companion that he has longed for. Unfortunately for Tim, his once-in-a-lifetime wish misfires -- transforming the young lad into a dog instead of granting him a companion pooch. Will Tim be able to reverse the effects of the wish-granting supernova in time to enjoy Christmas with the family, or will he end up spending the holidays in the doghouse? ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
