I agree with milinersmuse: Too many disturbing scenes for children. Good story, good acting. Definitely worthwhile. But not for children. Contains scenes of child abuse, extreme neglect/endangerment, very scary abusive mother.

I loved this movie. Heart-wrenching at times and heartwarming at other times. Definitely recommend this one

Simple story well told, this has some good reminders that first impressions can be false, the aged have value, it takes a village to raise a child and other values.

It was a LOT of story to fit into 90 minutes, so it seemed a little rushed and simplified, but hey, it's BBC, so even then the story and acting are superb.

Too many disturbing scenes to be watched with children under the age of 12.

I had just finished the novel, and followed it with this excellent adaptation. Very well done.

Goodnight Mr. Tom - such a lovely movie which shows how true love overcomes all.

If Alistair Sim's Scrooge at Xmas doesn't move you, then Goodnight Mr. Tom won't either.

This is a movie that bring tears to a glass eye. WWII and a grumpy old man. Superb !
