The type of movie that the English excel at making
If you like well done stories such as the Secret Garden this will appeal to you. The cast of mostly unknown actors give excellent performances. This is the type of movie that Britain does well. The actresses playing Hatty are appealing and the settings and production values are outstanding. While primarily a children's film, this production will appeal to all ages. It was not released theatrically in the States but is on several Cable channels. Don't miss it.
