Tom and Huck
Tom Sawyer enjoys skipping school and sneaking out late at night, especially with his friend Huck Finn. One night, the two boys witness a murder, and, fearing for their own lives, promise each other never to tell anyone what they saw.
But Tom has second thoughts when an innocent man is framed for the murder. If he tells anyone what he knows, he’ll be putting Huck and himself in grave danger. But if he keeps his original promise, an innocent man may be hanged for a crime he didn’t commit.
Based on Mark Twain’s classic novel, this 90s adaptation from Disney keeps the stakes high while striking a family-friendly tone with plenty of adventure and comedy. Although Tom’s moral dilemma will likely hold no surprises for seasoned viewers, it allows the story to explore the necessity of courage and honesty in meaningful friendships.
