Living in India, Mary Lennox, a young, privileged girl, is left orphaned when her parents are killed in an earthquake. She is sent back to England where she goes to live on her uncle's estate. It is a fairly isolated existence and she has to find things to keep herself occupied. She finds a sickly young boy...and a secret garden.Written by
The costume design is so detailed that the initials "M.L." (Mary Lennox) can be seen embroidered on Mary's stockings for the split second they appear on-screen, while Mary's Ayah is dressing her (at around 1 min), at the top of her thigh length white stockings. See more »
If Colin had really spent his entire life in his bed and had never walked, his muscles would have been severely atrophied, and it would require years of therapy to rebuild them. He definitely would not have been able to walk as well as he does at the end of the movie if he had just started walking, at most, two months before. See more »
This movie is one of my all-time favorite movies. I saw this movie about 5 times. I saw it with my friend on video tape when we were very young. Everything was beautiful - The cast, director's wonderful skills, music and the sight of a pretty garden. The girl who played Mary Lennox pulled out her best performance in this movie, Maggie Smith was as great as ever, the boy who played Collin was the most shining actor in the movie, and Martha was so kind and lovable character. Holland might be one of the most talented directors in the world, I give high points to the art in this movie and the beautiful music which I have listened to until the list of credits ended was so appealing to me. Give 10 out of 10.
