Thirteen-year-old Maria Merryweather (Dakota Blue Richards) discovers that she is the only hope for banishing an ancient curse from a magical kingdom in Director Gabor Csupo's adaptation of author Elizabeth Goudge's 1946 children's book "The Little White Horse".
While the plot is a bit confusing, the entire film is beautiful in its aesthetics and has a strong message for girls to take control of their own life and fight for themselves. Dakota Blue Richards is absolutely brilliant in her 2nd major film role and Tim Curry and Ioan Gruffudd add to the magic. Harry Potter fans may see some familiar imagery, for the novel it was based on "The Little White Horse" was a favorite of J.K. Rowling when she was a child. This film deserves much more attention and has much more depth than any of the flashy CGI effects shows at the theaters today.
