If you're looking for family fun, this engaging film, from the Wonderworks Family Movie series, is sweetly told. That's not a put-down. Based on an A.E. Hotchner book, the TV movie follows the coming of age of two brothers (splendidly acted by Greg Spottiswood and Zachary Bennett) at summer camp in 1935. Director Kevin (Anne of Green Gables) Sullivan gets good performances from his entire cast, including SCTV alum Joe Flaherty, but he clearly has an affinity for working with kids.
