When it comes to cherished childhood narratives, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden is a classic story that each new generation should have the chance to discover.
Now director Marc Munden breathes new life into this enchanting story and its magical realism setting will offer audiences something new and unexpected here.
Watch the fantastical new trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 they suddenly die, she is sent back to England to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven (Academy Award® and BAFTA-winner Colin Firth) on his remote country estate deep in the Yorkshire moors. There, she begins to uncover many family secrets, particularly after meeting her sickly cousin Colin (Edan Hayhurst), who has been shut away in a wing of the house. Together, these two damaged, slightly misfit children heal each other through their discovery of a wondrous secret garden, lost in the grounds of Misselthwaite Manor – a magical place of adventure that will change their lives forever.
This new trailer for The Secret Garden is bursting with life, and it sets the stage for a story that is sure to enchant children, and parents alike, with it’s tale of friendship, love and redemption.
Director Marc Munden does something different with his approach to the story here and the result is a film that feels like a work of art come to life, and they’ll be plenty of beautiful visuals to look upon at in wonder.
The Secret Garden will arrive in cinemas on May 7.
