Trivia

Highclere Castle is used for the orphanage. It will be later used as the home of Lord Crawley, the Fifth Earl of Grantham and family in "Downton Abbey" See more »

Goofs

This film has been criticised for the fact that Mary and Colin have ended up marrying each other despite originally being cousins in the book. However, this is considered a sequel to the 1987 adaptation and they weren't related in that. See more »

Is it as good as the original? No. Is it worth watching? Yes
31 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I adore The Secret Garden, it is one of my favourite movies ever. Back to the Secret Garden is not as good, but much better than I thought it would be, considering I was expecting an atrocity in all honesty. True, some of the dialogue is trite, some of the characters are underused(Colin for instance) and while Joan Plowright plays older Martha very well with a sweet sincerity I wasn't entirely convinced by how Martha was written some of it was on the contradictory side. That said, it is beautifully filmed, the soundtrack is soothing and the story is interesting with cute scenarios. The cast are excellent, particularly Florence Hoath and Camilla Belle, but the performances of David Warner, George Baker and Cherie Lunghi aren't to be disputed either. All in all, not as good as the original but worth watching. 7/10 Bethany Cox
