a) it takes place in the 1920's, so yeah it's going to look old, but not in the way you'd expect
b) it is based on a TRUE story.
(For those of you who HAVE seen it... let's all just come out right now and admit to crushing on Michael Schoeffling/Al Carver above and just get it over with...)
The official cover, synopsis, and trailer:
Synopsis: A runaway orphan, young Sonora (Gabrielle Anwar) persists at a menial job mucking stables in Doc Carver's traveling stunt show. Her great wish is to become a death-defying "diving girl," but Doc (Cliff Robertson) refuses her pleas. Undaunted, Sonora's gutsy resolve finally convinces him to give her a break. On the brink of stardom, however, a cruel twist of fate threatens to destroy her dream. With the help of a loving friend (Michael Schoeffling), Sonora must prove that if you want something badly enough, anything is possible!
***If you have NOT heard of Sonora Webster or this movie before and are entering the giveaway, I advise you NOT to search for any info, because SPOILERS! There's one key element that makes being a diving girl (see trailer) even more spectacular, but believe me, finding out what it is ahead of time will ruin it!
And now, the Rafflecopter! Yay!
