Johanna Spyri's classic family tale of girl who wins the hearts of everyone she meets returns in a fresh, new retelling featuring an all-star cast--Heidi. As a young orphan, Heidi (Emma Bolger--In America) goes to live with her grumpy grandfather (Max von Sydow--Minority Report, Pelle the Conqueror). But the idyllic life they create together ends abruptly when Heidi's aunt claims custody and then sells Heidi to Mme. Rottenmeir (Geraldine Chaplin--Hable con Ella) to serve as a companion to an invalid girl in Rottenmeir's care. Now, in spite of Heidi's ability to befriend all around her, she soon misses her grandfather and longs for their life in the mountains.

Heartwarming remake of classic tale still powerfully moving.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Heidi (2005) is the story of an orphaned girl who goes to live on a remote mountain with her grandfather, based on the beloved children's classic book from 1880 of the same name. There have also been numerous other film adaptations. There's very little content of concern. Youngest viewers may be frightened by a scene when a character nearly falls from a cliff, but there's a safe resolution. Heidi's parents' death, as well as her grandfather's worry about his own death, are briefly mentioned. There are several mentions that her grandfather killed a man in the past, as well as mentions of his past drinking and gambling. A character mentions drowning unwanted kittens, and another character almost hits a goat with a large stick. Two adult characters smoke and one buys tobacco.
