Gerald, James and Kathleen discover a garden in which is hidden a Princess and a magic ring. Although the Princess is not quite who she says she is the ring is truly magic and so are other parts of the castle's grounds.
Don't be deceived by the title of this movie. If you're expecting a rousing adventure yarn involving pirates and sailing the bounding main or perhaps a race against both time and baddies to retrieve a long-hidden hoard then you're going to be disappointed. Rather this is a much quieter affair centering around the efforts of a bunch of siblings to save their home and family from financial ruin. That being said, this is a very pleasant movie. It is British-made and so eschews the clichés you'd expect from a Hollywood-made flick and it stars some familiar and talented British actors. The plot is intelligent and, needless to say, the acting is excellent. It's all very low-key though and while it's definitely suitable for families, younger kids might find it a bit dull. Older kids will enjoy it though and, I'm pleased to say, their parents will too.
