An enchanting and timeless adventure celebrating friendship, nature and the limitless power of childhood imagination, where an orphaned girl discovers a magical garden hidden at her strict uncle's estate in Yorkshire.
‘The Secret Garden’ tells the story of Mary Lennox (Dixie Egerickx), a prickly and unloved 10-year-old girl, born in India to wealthy British parents. When she is sent back to England to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven (Colin Firth) at Misselthwaite Manor, under the watchful eye of Mrs. Medlock (Julie Walters) Mary dreams of company. She begins to uncover many family secrets, particularly after meeting her sickly cousin Colin (Edan Hayhurst), and through her discovery of a wondrous garden, locked away and lost within the grounds of Misselthwaite Manor. While searching for Hector, the stray dog who had led Mary to the garden walls, she befriends local boy Dickon (Amir Wilson). Together, these three damaged, slightly misfit children heal each other as they delve deeper into the mysteries of the garden – a magical place of adventure that will change their lives forever. From the producer of ‘Paddington’ and ‘Harry Potter’ comes a visionary adaptation of one of the world’s most enduring children’s stories.
