Melinda's World (2003)

 

Despite its potential, Melinda's World never quite managed to live up to expectations. The film was directed by David Baumgarten and featured a talented cast, including Bill Beeson, Robyn Metchik, and Jean Fields, but it failed to impress critics or moviegoers. Despite a few good moments, the movie ultimately fell flat and failed to make an impact.

 

Melinda is the young 11-year-old daughter of sour parents who finds intrigue in the smallest of things; a spun silver spiderweb, her small box of treasures and an afternoon at Silver Lake.

 

Her best friend refers to her as a 'silly goose' due to her nature. As the movie progresses, Melinda goes through ageless comforts and pains, with waylaid college professors entering her life, along with a warm-hearted waitress who introduces her to Coca-Cola and the magical blues and explorative attention for a boy.

 

She eventually loses her beloved aunt and observes her father sink into a world of angry drunkenness and through it all she matures and learns to accept the bittersweet realities of life by going back to her treasure chest of memories, to relieve them once again.

With Patrick looking up to Houston and learning the trade of horseriding, will the latter's sudden death due to the town bully prevent the young boy from going ahead with participating in the championship?
