harriet the spy

This hip adaptation of the popular coming-of-age tale of Harriet, the aspiring scribe, blends jazzy filmmaking with all that growing up stuff about loss, the cruelty of children, and, in this case, being a writer. Rosie O’Donnell’s brisk but heartfelt turn as the no-nonsense Ole Golly is an added bonus. And Eartha Kitt has a marvelous cameo as Harriet’s eccentric neighbor, Mrs. Plummer. [us, 1996]
