Storyline

After the death of their mother, two children in Liverpool run away from home to escape their cruel uncle who treats them harshly. They flee to Ireland in hopes of finding love and safety with their kindly grandmother. However, their uncle is a failed actor who is a master of disguise. He uses his skill to pursue them in hopes of finding them for his own financial gain. The children must rely on their wits and the kindness of strangers to stay ahead of him or their lives will be in mortal jeopardy. Written by Anonymous

Brilliantly acted
16 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very well acted film by actors Ron Moody and Jack Wild who worked well together in the movie Oliver. Ron Moody is brilliantly funny and sometimes frightening with his disguises and different characters. Jack Wild is wonderful as the compassionate loving older brother who loves his younger sister enough to run away to Ireland so she can be truly loved by someone: their grandmother who is nicely portrayed by Dorthy McGuire. The adventures they encounter on their way to Ireland are wonderful as is the scenery of Ireland. This film was shot entirely in Ireland and the music soundtrack is as lovely as Ireland. A nice family film with a happy ending. Beats what is out there today.
