When Bella first goes out to work on her garden she is dressed in black from head to foot, including netting over her face and neck, and rubber gloves. This would be consistent with her OCD / need for things to be correct. She has rolled up her sleeves, however, exposing most of her forearms to whatever contaminants she is trying to avoid. There is no logical reason for anyone to do this, particularly not someone like Bella. See more »
Luna couldn't always fly, you know. Well, long ago, before the world was round, Luna and the rest of her species inhabited a... remote forest. They had... tiny little wings but were flightless.

It's been some time since I've been so captivated by a film, initially I found myself wondering what I was watching, and even what genre it fitted into, the dreaded family film.
The arrival of Andrew Scott convinced me that it was going to be good, I hadn't realised just how good. The characters are virtually perfect, each of them with a part to play, each of them truly captivating, and beautifully portrayed.
Every single cast member is fantastic, Tom Wilkinson, Jessica Brown Findlay, and of course the incredible Andre Scott. I loved Anna Chancellor's prickly librarian.
It was a feel good film, on that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
It's a quirky story, one that could be overlooked, but don't make the same mistake I did, quite simply, it's an enchanting film. 10/10
