Millions have grown up with Tom Sawyer’s pranks and adventures. The book by Mark Twain is still – more than 130 years after it was published – one of the most well-known children’s books in the world. And as a child, who didn’t want to be like Tom, to be as skilled as he was in avoiding responsibility, to have exciting adventures every single day, to be the heartthrob of girls, and, most of all, to have a friend like Huck Finn? It’s about time for a contemporary Tom Sawyer film!
