Movie Review | Because of Winn Dixie 
'Everything good that happened that summer happened because of Winn Dixie.'
Based on the novel by Kate DiCamillo, Because of Winn Dixie is the charming story of a young girl, Opal's, relationship with a dog and her emotionally distant father who is a Preacher. As Opal and Winn Dixie journey through the small southern town that is their new home that summer, their interactions and friendships with the locals create a renewed sense of community through the discovery of some insightful life lessons. Because of Winn Dixie sensitively and gently deals with some significant issues such as abandonment, alcoholism, death of a loved one and change. This is balanced with the most delightful moments of humour. 'Winn Dixie and Opal weave through the small town like a needle and thread repairing a patchwork quilt.'
