Product Description:

An extremely powerful and uplifting story about a family of black sharecroppers, the Morgans, set in rural Louisiana during the early 1930s, DISNEY'S SOUNDER is an adaptation of the Newberry Award winning novel by William H. Armstrong. Originally made into a film in 1972 by Martin Ritt, this SOUNDER was directed by the star of that earlier film, Kevin Hooks. Here, Daniel Lee Robertson stars as David Lee Morgan, a young man whose father is sent to jail after stealing a ham to feed his family. Acting as the man of the house until the crops are in, David eventually sets off on a journey to find his father, and along the way achieves his dream of learning to read while also learning some hard lessons about life.

A family film that realistically deals with the hardships of being poor and black in America, SOUNDER is an intensely moving picture no less important today than it was in 1972.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

From the classic book by William H. Armstrong comes Disney's all-new production of SOUNDER, an uplifting story of one boy's faith, strength, and dogged determination. As Boy's (Daniel Lee Robertson III) family faces the daily struggles of Depression-era sharecroppers, a loyal coonhound named Sounder becomes their only real friend. Food is scarce, and nightly hunting trips offer little relief. In an act of desperation, Father steals to feed his hungry family. When Father is convicted, it triggers Boy's courageous journey to find him in the labor camps. Boy comes a long way to discover much more -- a friendly teacher, a hunger to read, and a better life.

Sounder Movie Lover: from MD US -- September, 25, 2008

For those of you looking for the Sounder movie with Cicely Tyson in it, this is not the movie. I bought it without realizing this until it was too late. It's not as well put together as the original story made in 1972 with Miss Tyson. The Disney version is more focused around he dog, while the original movie centers more around the life of a poor black family and their struggles to survive, beautiful story.
