Reviews

Comedy based on the novel by Kate DeCamillo. A ten-year-old girl (AnnaSophia Robb), abandoned by her mother when she was three, moves to a small town in Florida with her father (Jeff Daniels), a preacher. While there, she adopts a stray dog whom she names after the local supermarket where he was found. With her goofy pooch by her side, she meets an eclectic group of townspeople and rekindles an almost lost relationship with her father.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Family Film 7 Mar. 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched this film with my grandchildren aged 4 & 7, boy and girl.

They were enraptured as was my little dog "Codie". The young actress who played the part of Opal was enchanting and the dog "Winn Dixie" captured our hearts. I haven't read the book but this film makes me want to buy and read this story. It has a wonderful charm and the characters are sometimes eccentric, odd, loveable and eventually pull at the heart strings. I recommend this film highly especially but not preferably as a family film and feel people of all ages will enjoy this feature. Please make more like this there's enough pain and heartbreak in the world without seeing it on celluloid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than expected! 25 Nov. 2010
By CalUni
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Because of Winn-Dixie is one of those films you happen to see that ends up being embedded in your memory, forever part of your favourite films list. I saw this on a plane literally only one day after losing my own dog, which was devastating. This movie came along just at the right time and was a wonderful comfort. But in retrospect, this is a genuinely great family film. The tone is very emotional, particularly when referencing Opal's mother. Winn-Dixie is one of those lovely fable animals that enters the life of someone in need of their presence and unconditional love.

Everyone in the cast really seemed to just go with it and find a common ground in terms of how it is played out - gently and with purpose.
And the soundtrack is a combination of lively south fun and bluegrassy melancholia.

If you're on the lookout for a film wearing its heart proudly on its sleeve, this little gem is very much worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A film for all ages 4 May 2012
By LMASK6
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a most heart warming film that will keep your interest right from the start. The stars are definitely India Opal (the little girl) and Winn Dixie (the dog). There are some lessons for adults in the film along with laughs and a few tears - a nice feel good film which will leave you taking away something from what you have watched. No violence, bad language or other non-requirements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even the dog smiles! 4 Mar. 2015
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This 2005 film starts with 10-year-old India Opal Buloni [AnnaSophia Robb], abandoned by her mother at the age of three, who has just moved to a small town with her preacher father. She encounters a mischievous scruffy dog and, claiming the stray as her own names it Winn-Dixie after the local supermarket.
The film follows India as she wanders aimlessly from one encounter to another, but because of the dogs antics, the young girl soon gets to make new friends with people in the community. Youngsters will see lots of animal antics that will make them laugh and parents will get a film where a young girl and her dog brings a fractured community together.
The single disc is somewhat low volume and features are sparse. Language [basically English with subtitles on/off], scene selection [behind the scenes, gag reel, training winn Dixie, fox.co [realeases/self publicity]. The film itself is full of over the top sentimentalism, but AnnaSophia Robb portrays her role perfectly. This is classic Sunday afternoon viewing and definitely a film that grandparents can watch with the grandchildren without fear. A ***** feel-good family film.

This is a really well-made film with great performances and high production values. However, opinion will be divided by the story's message. In the face of a world that can be cold and heartless and in the midst of a life that can be painful and lonely, we are called to have the faith of a child to follow the lead of a free spirit (her dog) which is open to and genuinely interested in people. We see how by being valued, isolated or destructive individuals are transformed into a caring mini-community in which each has a place and everyone has a part to play. The message is faith and love is not just an alternative to cynicism and self-interest but the cure. I thoroughly recommend this film and keeping the faith.
