Because of Winn-DixieClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
It's not finishing school or a traditional upbringing that causes ten-year-old Opal to learn about the world outside of her own backyard, but rather a particularly awkward-looking mutt named Winn-Dixie. Based on a novel by Kate DiCamillo, Winn-Dixie and Opal not only become privy to the eventful, if eccentric, lives of their neighbors (including a librarian who fought off a bear with nothing but a novel, a blind woman who claims to "see" with her heart, and a sensitive ex-con turned pet store clerk), but Opal herself manages to reconcile some of the depression left over after her mother had abandoned the family seven years earlier.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A whimsical family film about longing and belonging told with gentle humanity.
Rotten: A dreary, uninspired tale.
Fresh: Winn-Dixie has a way of growing on you.
Rotten: Has some wan jokes, incongruous slapstick and the occasional embarrassment, which may keep it from being as popular as the Newberry Award-winning novel by Kate DiCamillo.
