The Adventures of Ociee Nash | 2004 | G | - 0.2.1

Film set around the turn of the 20th century, about the adventures of 9-year-old Ociee Nash (Skyler Day). Ociee is growing up with her father (Keith Carradine) and two older brothers when her father decides that she needs a woman's influence and so she's sent to South Carolina to live with her aunt (Mare Winningham). Along the trip Ociee encounters such famous people as Nellie Bly, Orville and Wilbur Wright, and even President William McKinley. Also with Ty Pennington and Tom Key. Directed by Kristen McGary. [1:38]

SEX/NUDITY 0 - A man touches a woman's hand tenderly, and a girl talks about a woman feeling like she's an old maid.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - We see a house on fire and hear that a girl is stuck inside, a girl helps her out and down a tree to safety. Two girls fight, tumbling around on the ground, and one tears the other's dress. Two girls fight with shoving, one holds the other in a headlock and one rips the other's sleeve. A girl hides under a table when a man enters, he finds her, she climbs onto the table and yells at him. A man approaches a girl and a boy and begins laughing loudly scaring them, and they run away. A girl finds a wagon in the wilderness, a man comes out stretching and moaning and when the girl sees him (one of his eyes is filmy) she is frightened and runs away. A man yells at another man and threatens him. A boy yells at a pig, calling it names, after he's unsuccessful in catching him (he is now covered with mud). Two girls and a boy swing on a rope swing over a stream, while other boys taunt them and one girl slips off and falls into the water. A girl talks about her mother having died from measles. A man collapses on the ground from too much alcohol.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
