WINSLOW AND THE EMPEROR cover image
The story blends well with the fictionalized account of San Francisco in 1875. It takes a known figure, Emperor Norton, and brings him to life while still retaining many of the eccentricities that he was reported to have. The children are entertaining. Some instances of foul language (2 instances of "Damn") and questionable behavior. Shows the importance of feeling loved and wanted. Winslow wants his family to love him and feel like he matters to them, because they always seem to be immersed in work. Norton wants to feel like people care about him and remember him in his time. The screenplay is easy-going, humorous and poignant.
An earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area opens a time portal in the Berkeley Hills, and three eleven-year-olds travel more than a hundred years back in time. When they return, they are followed by the incorrigible 'Emperor Norton' of old San Francisco.
