Based on the magical award-winning book by Natalie Babbitt, TUCK EVERLASTING captures the dreamlike story that has enchanted readers for two generations in a new film starring Award winners Ben Kingsley, Sissy Spacek and William Hurt.

Winnie Foster (Alexis Bledel), a teenage girl on the cusp of maturity, longs for a life outside the control of her domineering mother (Amy Irving). When lost in the woods near her home she happens upon Jesse Tuck (Jonathan Jackson), a boy unlike any she has ever met before. He and his family (William Hurt, Sissy Spacek, Scott Bairstow) are kind and generous, and immediately take her in as one of their own. However the Tucks hold a powerful secret, and with the mysterious Man in the Yellow Suit (Ben Kingsley) tracking them down they feel the world as they know it could end. Ultimately Winnie must decide whether to return to her family forever.
