Storyline

Since as far back as Kyle and Evie Preston can remember, their grandmother told fantastical tales about elves who had been trapped underground by giants for thousands of years. Now grandmother is gone, and the siblings are surprised to discover that they have inherited a decrepit gold mine and a family home they never even knew existed. Upon discovering that grandmother's far fetched stories have a bizarre basis in reality and that by freeing the fairies from the mine they will discover a cure for their terminally ill father (Bernsen), Kyle and Evie race against time to free the trapped fairies and save their father's life.

A Very Fairy After School Special
11 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is not about special effects or dialogue or script writing or even acting. This movie is about belief: Belief in yourself, in others, in the healing power of faith and the power of good.

Just like the after school specials of yore, this movie is an ingenious way to facilitate the continued growth of children's' faith in humanity and mankind. It helps open adults' eyes to what children take for granted.

If you want a striking movie with superb acting and state-of-the-art special effects, then this movie is not for you. However, if you love fairies and you Believe in the Goodness Within, this movie should have a special place in your collection.

I know my children will watch this movie when the time comes.
