This gorgeous, thoughtful film, based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett, tells the story of a young Victorian girl, Mary Lennox, who has been sent to live with her uncle in his gloomy English manor. Left to her own devices, Mary begins exploring and uncovering the secrets of the house and garden, befriending the sickly boy who lives there and a local farm boy along the way.
