About the film
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, under the watchful eye of Mrs. Medlock (BAFTA-winner Julie Walters) and only with the household maid, Martha (Isis Davis) for company.
Mary 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, and through her discovery of a wondrous garden, locked away and lost within the grounds of Misselthwaite Manor. While searching for Hector, the stray dog who had led Mary to the garden walls, she befriends local boy Dickon (Amir Wilson) who, through the garden’s restorative powers, helps her to fix Hector's injured leg.
