The Secret Garden

Agnieszka Holland’s lusciously verdant big screen adaptation of the timeless Frances Hodgson Burnett novel is a gorgeously cinematic and emotionally involving modern classic featuring stunning Roger Deakins cinematography, a lush score by Zbigniew Preisner, and fantastic performances from its young leads. When a young orphan is sent to live on her uncle’s mysterious old Victorian estate, she discovers The Secret Garden, a special place where magic, hope and love grow.

“The result is an instant classic – rich, dense, resonant, powerful.” – Jay Carr, Boston Globe

“Executed to near perfection in all artistic departments, this superior adaptation of the perennial favorite novel will find its core public among girls , but should prove satisfying enough to a range of audiences.” – Todd McCarthy, Variety

“Like all great stories for children, The Secret Garden contains powerful truths just beneath the surface. There is always a level at which the story is telling children about more than just events; it is telling them about the nature of life. That was the feeling I had when I read Frances Hodgson Burnett’s book many years ago, and it is a feeling that comes back powerfully while watching Agnieszka Holland’s new film.” – Roger Ebert
