Sounder (2003)

Posted by Lisa on

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.
