Starring Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd) as Enid Blyton, Matthew Macfadyen (Little Dorrit, Spooks), Denis Lawson (Bleak House) & Claire Rushbrook (Secrets & Lies).
The film explores how the orderly, reassuringly clear worlds Enid Blyton created within her stories contrasted with the complexity of her own personal life. It sheds light on the ambitious and driven – but as yet unpublished – young woman, from the development of her rich imagination against the adversity of an imperfect childhood, two World Wars, and a first marriage ending in divorce – to household name.
One of the most recognised storytellers of all time, Enid Blyton’s charming characters and classic tales have enchanted countless generations of children for almost 80 years. Having sold over 500 million books in 40 countries, this film follows the woman behind the enduring and compelling stories such as the beloved Famous Five, Secret Seven, Malory Towers and Noddy series.

The big disappointment for me was that there no subtitles and as my hearing is failing I rely on those. Bit of a waste of money for me.
This background story is thought provoking, and Enid Blyton seems an unreal figure.
Adults will gain insight as to why she behaved so abominably towards her own family, children and husband.
Very sad that this Author had such emotional and psychological problems herself, unable to face the realities of her own real life.
Helena Bonham Carter excellent, a difficult personality to portray.
I recommend this film.
I must admit I did find the film entertaining and Helen really played up the evil Blyton character well. Blyton's husband Hugh was quite good as well and made me laugh when he was playing his tunes on his gramaphone. Them thur was some big hits back in da day "Run Rabbit run rabbit run run run" lol
