John Thaw stars as Tom Oakley in the award-winning family drama Goodnight Mister Tom. The DVD is based on the novel by Michelle Magorian and explores the life-long bond which develops between its two lead characters--an illiterate 10 year-old orphan from London (Willie), and a grumpy, cynical old widow who lives alone in the English countryside (Tom). After Willie is forced to seek refuge at Toms house in anticipation of the WWII German bombings of London, the story follows the trials and tribulations of the enduring relationship which eventually forms between them. The 101-minute DVD is in DVD 5 format and also features biographies.
Set in a small English town at the start of WWII, Goodnight Mister Tom is based on Michelle Magorian's novel about a cantankerous WWI veteran named Tom Oakley (John Thaw), who, against his will, is paired with a London orphan named Willie Beech. The story is based around the relationship which develops between Tom and Willie, who is sent to him after the children of London were evacuated in preparation for the expected German bombings. After initially receiving a cold and hostile reception from Tom, Willie--an illiterate, shy child who has endured a horrific childhood--soon brings out his caring paternal side, which had sadly disappeared many years earlier. The enduring bond and friendship that the two characters share will change both of their lives forever.

I have not read the book but will after reading the other reviews.
This is a very heartwrenching. sensitive, touching waretime film about an boy evacuated from London to stay with a widowed man in the country and how he gradually settles in to life there. He terrified to be suddenly summoned back to his Mum in London and Mr Tom searches for him when he gets no news from him. There is a close friendship between William and another boy in the village.
The transformation of Mr Tom and William during the story is wonderful.
Do please watch out for the expression on Mr Tom's face when William learns to ride his friend's bike. Superb acting. It's a real tearjerker and I get a lump in my throat every time....wonderful
The story line follows the book as best it can and it doesn't disappoint. Couldn't have had a better actor to play the role of Mr Tom.
Very good book & Film.
In school we read the book,then for Christmas I got the DVD. At school we watched the film(when we had finished the book).
In the film /book A boy called Willie(Wiliam)is evacuated to the contry and Willie stays with Mister Tom. At the begining Mister Tom didn't want Willie and at the end Willie is adopted to Mister Tom. The book/film shows lots of emotions (some people cry).
Some of it is sad eg:When Willie gets locked up in the understairs cupboard.
Willie's Mum is really nasty.
There are some really gorss bits like when Willie's hair had been shaved off and you could see lots of scars(the scars are make-up). There is a gross bit were the camera zooms onto Willie's back and you could see the scars on his back and Willie turns round and Mister Tom see's the scars.When Willie does that Mister Tom lookes worried.
There are other good bits. I am not going to tell you any more because I dont want to spoil it for you.
Hope you find my review useful.
