Storyline

Geraldine and her two daughters, Livvie and Angeline, are living rough on the streets on London. When their van blows up, they must find an alternitive place to stay. At first, they live in temporary housing, but the conditions are unbearable. Geraldine reacts quickly and the family decides to take up residence in Scottley's, the best department store in London. They must keep it a secret from doorman Brian (whom the girls call Mr. Whiskers), and a couple of bumbling thieves who want to rob the store safe of its jewels.

the greatest store in the world
27 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is brilliant. Elizabeth and Holly Earl were both brilliant as Livvie and Angeline. Its a must see for everyone. I was 12 when i first saw it and i enjoyed it along with my little sister, who was 5 then and my dad who was about 41 then its a film for all ages. the acting is top class and you can tell that the cast and crew really tried hard.You can't expect less than the best when it comes to Elizabeth Earl though, she's talented and puts her heart into everything she does and that is why everything she acts in is brilliant. Holly Earl is a star in the making and she's going the same way as her sister. I hope they will both me successful in the future.
