The Secret of Moonacre DVD Review

The Secret of Moonacre DVD Review



Synopsis: After being orphaned, young Maria Merryweather leaves her luxurious home to live with her eccentric uncle at Moonacre Manor. There, she discovers a magical world inhabited by outlandish characters and mythical beasts. Now, Maria must unearth the secrets of her past before the 5000th moon rises and Moonacre Manor disappears into the sea forever.
Based on the classic novel by Elizabeth Goudge, The Little White Horse, which J.K. Rowling has called “my favorite childhood book.”

Review: The Secret of Moonacre is loosely based on the classic children's book "The Little White Horse" by Elizabeth Goudge.   There is admittedly a lot of dramatic license taken, so staunch fans of the book beware.  The film is a fantastic and epic fantasy tale that really brings fairly tales to life!  The film includes everything from romance and magic to feuds and deception.

The cast is wonderful, and Tim Curry is as exquisite as ever!  This very british and very true to heart film is a joy for all ages.  There are great lessons to be learned and a fantastical story to enjoy.

The special features on the DVD include: Making-of featurette, deleted scenes, cast/crew interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

Interest Range: Fantasy
