Tom Sawyer

Tom Sawyer

Deutschland 2010/2011, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Tom Sawyer has nothing but pranks and mischief on his mind – much to the distress of his aunt Polly, with whom he and his step-brother Sid live in the little town of St. Petersburg on the Mississippi. Although he's a tough nut to crack, Polly has taken it upon herself to raise Tom to be a responsible, decent person. Luckily for Tom, he has a friend who loves adventures as much as he does, Huck Finn. Tom and the orphan boy, who lives in a barrel at the edge of town, spend every free minute together. Only one very exceptional girl manages to take Tom's mind off of his gallivanting around with Huck: Becky Thatcher, the daughter of the new judge of St. Petersburg, who has just moved into town. Tom does everything possible to impress her with his "heroic deeds."

One day, one of their missions takes Tom and Huck to the town's cemetery at midnight. Lo and behold, they aren't the only ones haunting the cemetery in the dead of night: they unwittingly see Injun Joe, a fear-inspiring fellow who's long been up to no good in St. Petersburg, commit a brutal murder and then frame the slightly daft, drunken but innocent casket-maker Muff Potter. What are they to do? Their courage is put to a demanding and dangerous test...
