Just watched this childhood favourite again and it's still just as good as I remembered.
The young daughter of a politician, Savannah, runs away due to lack of attention in her life. Her father is busy with his career, sucking up to all the big shots, while her mother is busy trying to please her husband and all the people that her husband constantly brings home.
Savannah writes a note to her parents, telling them that she's running away from home, but they never find it. She hides in the car of two not too bright crooks, who are slowly converted into parent figures, after spending a few days with the adorable little girl.
Savannah really captures my heart in this movie. It's a great example of how a child in the midst of all of grownup reality, can see the innocent, carefree goodness of life and share it with everyone around her.
