When a spoiled English girl living in 19th century India loses both parents in a cholera epidemic, she is sent back to England to live in a country mansion. The lord is a strange old man-- frail and deformed, immensely kind but so melancholy. She wishes to discover what has caused him so much sorrow and to bring joy back to the household. It all must have something to do with the screams and wails which echo through the house at night and no one wants to talk about. Written by

Colin Firth and Derek Jacobi worked on The Secret Garden (1987), and The King's Speech (2010). However, they did not have any scenes together in the former. See more »
Please might I have a bit of earth? To make a garden? I love gardens.
There was someone... someone very dear... who loved gardens, too.

I disagree with the other review of this movie. It is not the best book-to-movie adaption but it's a cute movie. I watched it all the time as a kid and thought this version was much better than the newer one. The acting is pretty good, I think the kids understood their parts, and played up the brattiness I always loved/hated about them. Also, seeing Colin Firth at the end as a grown up Colin Craven doesn't hurt it any. While the plot deviates somewhat from the book I think it kept the spirit of the story well enough. The musical score was also fantastic and leant a lot to atmosphere of the story. If you love this book and haven't seen this version, I highly recommend checking it out, especially if you have children.
