Storyline

When the National Gallery in London is flooded the Director, Quentin Lester, decides to transfer the entire collection to the Welsh caves where the collection was stored during World War II. The entire operation is supposed to be secret and the cover story is that they are a mining company looking to reopen the mines, good news to the economically depressed town nearby. It takes local school teacher, Angharad Stanner, all of a day however to learn what is really going on. She soon has the entire school at the site taking a tour but Quentin's refusal to open any of the packing crates leads to something of a falling out. Gradually, Quentin gets to know the locals, particularly the Hughes family. In the end, everyone benefits and learns from each other. Written by garykmcd

quirky town
7 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

National Gallery in London is flooded. Elitist curator Quentin Lester organizes the transfer of the collection to an abandoned mine in north Wales. Local teacher Angharad Stannard soon uncovers the secret operation. Quentin confuses little boy Dylan Hughes' love of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for a love of the Italian masters. The locals start seeing the art which leads to changes. The weird butcher renovates the local pond. Dylan's mother is struggling after her husband disappeared and decides to open a cafe in their gas station's garage. Daughter Minnie Hughes is casing the cave. The Sellwood sisters have come out of their seclusion with their own painting. Questin is not a hunky lead or a terribly romantic lead. The town is full of quirky characters. They're all likable. This is a light quirky movie. The little boy is compelling. It's fun. It's heart-warming.
