Great adaptation of a beloved children'ts classic,
This review is from: Secret Garden - Hallmark Hall of Fame [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I know I should review the actual DVD from Amazon, but I can only review the movie (and I was surprised not to have seen one with the product): it's definitely worth purchasing this DVD to see this version of The Secret Garden. The scenery is fantastic and the cast was well-chosen (including Derek Jacobi as the disinterested and ailing father and a very very young Colin Firth as an adult Collin) even though Gennie James as Mary could have had more coaching on her English accent. All in all, this film adaptation of the children's classic is a more accurate portrayal of the book's essence.
