Daddy Long Legs is based on a novel with the same name by Jean Webster. It is categorized as children literature and has some fairy-tale characteristics. However, it is a story portrayed in such details sometimes, that takes you to the less visited corners of your heart. It stays true to the human feelings of sorrow, pain, failure, joy, self-esteem and strength and makes you to relive them. It beautifully shows how Judy lives in the present and how enjoyable that can be. She is conscious about herself and her surroundings and willingly takes responsibility, makes decisions and acts upon them.


Release Date:

14 January 1990
