It seems like Reese Witherspoon has been on the A-list forever, but it wasn't until 1991 that she made her feature film debut in 'The Man in the Moon,' a sweet coming of age story set in 1950s rural Louisiana.

In the movie, she runs around the farm in a one-piece swimsuit, spars with her strict father (Sam Waterson) and experiences her first kiss and heartbreak--with the slightly older but still very boyish Jason London.

Now Reese's lookalike daughter Ava is 11, just a couple of years younger than she was when the movie was shot.

Watch the trailer below--it's a great summer rental.
