Movie Details

A 12-year-old Jodie Foster makes one of her periodic ABC Afterschool Special appearances as the title character in The Secret Life of T.K. Dearing. Considered something of an oddball by her family and peer group, peppery preteen T.K. Dearing finds a friend and kindred spirit in her young-at-heart grandfather (Eduard Franz). The story shifts into high gear when T.K. invites grandpa to join her secret club. (Hard to believe that Jodie Foster starred in this wholesome little escapade the same year that she played "working girl" Iris in Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver!) ~ Rovi
