We received a copy of The Secret Garden for review. All opinions are my own.
I love movies that I can watch with my kids that spark their imagination, have a good storyline and music. We all are very musically inclined so that it always a bonus. This remake of the movie is a great addition to our video library. Colin Firth, as always, did a great job.
It has also been an inspiration to read the book so we have put a hold on it at our local library. You can get The Secret Garden book or the 100th Anniversary Illustrated Edition on Amazon for a great price. (think Christmas presents) While you are there, be sure to get your copy of The Secret Garden.
It is now available on Digital (get it here) and on BLU-RAY™ and DVD October 6, 2020.
THE SECRET GARDEN starring Colin Firth (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Bridget Jones’s Baby), Julie Walters (Mary Poppins Returns, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) and Dixie Egerickx (The Little Strangers) is a new take on the beloved classic novel of the same name written by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Set in England during a new time period in 1947, the film follows a young orphan girl who, after being sent to live with her uncle, discovers a magical garden on the grounds of his estate.
