Not only for kids
15 June 2000 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film when I was about 5 or 6 on tv,and it stuck in my mind.Sadly I never got to see it again until 3 years ago when sky tv showed it.It was just as good as I had remembered it.What I really like about it is its not a silly kids film, it is sensible yet still has a little comedy element to it.It is about two orphans who run away from their cruel step dad.They run away to Ireland to try to find their grandma.Also coming after them is their uncle Hawk who wants to kill them, so that there grandfathers inheritance will pass to him.

I can't praise this film enough, the acting is superb and the soundtrack is also brilliant.It really is an underated cinema gem in my opinion.It has to be one of my all time film favourites.Please see if you can.
