Twelve-year-old Barbara Thorson flees from reality, living in the imaginary world of fantasy and magic, where she fights with giants. Her family does not understand her, peers do not like her, and she irritates teachers. And only recently moved here Sofia, her same age, trying to make friends with her.Written by
The English girl claims to be from Leeds, England, so should sound lower class northern, instead she has an accent that sounds way more like she's grown up in the Home Counties. For those unfamiliar with this, she should sound more like the new female Doctor Who or the first Doctor of the new series, but instead she sounds more like she should be finding lions at the back of the wardrobe or casting spells with Hermione Granger.

I read several reviews before I started watching the movie and all those reviews totally slammed the movie. Don't listen to those reviews. This movie is every bit as good as A Monster Calls and Phoebe In Wonderland. In each movie the child is faced with life and death struggles, fear and denial. Watch this movie and keep at least one kleenex in your pocket. My family is dealing with the same thing. And none of us is handling it well.
