Remember curling up and reading Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic children's book The Secret Garden as a kid? We most certainly do! And that's why we're incredibly excited that it's been adapted to the big screen once again. Available to stream using On Demand beginning Aug. 7, the film follows Mary (played by Dixie Egerickx) — a spoiled, orphaned girl who goes to live with her uncle, Lord Archibald Craven (Colin Firth) — in England after her parents pass away.
While the timeline is a bit different than what Hodgson Burnett originally wrote — the book was written in 1911, and this adaptation is set in 1947 — it's an incredibly nostalgic experience for any reader. Beautifully shot, the film is chock-full of magic and important life lessons that viewers can take to heart at any age.
