Huckelberry was a young boy , who runs away from home, and floats down the Mississippi River. He meets a run away slave named Jim and the two undertake a series of adventures based on the Picaresque novel by Mark Twain. As the story progresses the duo exploit an array of episodic enterprises, while Huckleberry slowly changes his views of bigotry. Along the way, Huck and Jim meet the King and Duke, who ultimately send the protagonists towards a different route on their journey. As Huck begins to have a change of heart, he gradually begins to distinguish between right and wrong, and conclusively, Huck is faced with the moral dilemma between the world's prejudice, of which he's grown up with, and the lessons Jim has taught him throughout the story about the evils of racism.Written by
When Pap Finn is carrying Huck over his shoulder, down the stairs, we see (at around 5 mins) looking down from the second floor that the stair landing has a 2-candle sconce on its right wall and its left wall. At 12:11 looking up from the first floor there is no sconce on the right wall of the landing. See more »

The adventures of two people running away
It's been years since I read "Huckleberry Finn" and I don't think I even finished it.
Elijah Wood plays Huck Finn and Courtney B. Vance plays Jim (he had a worse name in the book). The two of them set off on an adventure so that the two of them could be free: Huck free from his abusive "pap" (played by Ron Perlman) and Jim free from slavery. As they rafted down the Mississippi, they encountered one adventure after another.
This movie was more jovial than I remember the book being though it did take a moment to let marinate the fact that slavery was harming people. I appreciate the fact that they didn't make light of slaves being owned, beat, and overworked. Now I need to go read the book again.
