Young Tom Long is forced to stay with his kindly Aunt and Uncle while his brother recovers from a bout of the measles. At their flat, he is disappointed to find there is no garden to play in; but his disappointment turns to wonder when he discovers a magical garden which only appears at night when an old grandfather clock strikes thirteen. His nightly excursions to this beautiful garden become even more interesting when he realises that the people he meets cannot see him - except one young girl named Hattie. Written by
This is one of our favorite films and we were thrilled when we found the region 2 DVD for it. My husband talked about this film for years, since we saw it while in college. We just watched it again tonight and I was bawling while my husband sat glued to the screen. Even our three year old son was interested in the beauty of "Garden" as he called it. This is definitely one of our favorites.
One of the funniest characters, though a small role, is the estate's gardener. He's the same actor who plays Filch in the Harry Potter films. Except for one scene where the little brother appears, which probably makes sense in the book, everything flowed wonderfully in this film. We highly recommend this film.
