Movie Info

Disney's The Journey of Natty Gann stars Meredith Salenger in the title role. During the Depression, Natty's father (Ray Wise) takes a job in a Northwestern lumber camp, leaving his daughter behind in Chicago with the promise that he'll send for her when he's put together enough money. Unwilling to wait that long, Natty runs away from her guardian (Lainie Kazan) and hops a freight bound for her dad's camp. In addition to the human friends she accrues along the way, including vagabond John Cusack

There's a real sense of period, even if the film does occasionally become over-sentimental.

As Wolf, a dog named Jed gives a forthright and believable performance. Miss Salenger, for her part, gives one, too, and she carries the movie nicely.

It's nice to see a Disney film that follows the rules of the family-film genre as Walt laid them down.

This Disney feature is mildly entertaining, boasting great costumes by Wolsky, who was Oscar-nominated for his design.

Compelling adventure too violent for some kids.

Salenger is wonderful, and so is the wolf.

Another fondly remembered Disney flick absolutely flushed down the toilet by a pathetic full frame transfer. Sad news indeed.

Highly satisfying drama set in the 1930s about a courageous young girl's search for her father.

A solid, action-packed road trip, with heartened performances.
