A wonderful piece of family entertainment in the sense that nobody could possibly take offence at anything they see on the screen and many will obviously find it a blow struck for sanity in a wicked incomprehensible world. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- Directed by Lionel Jeffries, this adaptation of E Nesbit's much-loved novel is simply the finest children's film ever made in this country. Full Review

This is a lovely film, in the same spirit as the Secret Garden, or many other British tales of plucky children facing adversity with courage and grace. Full Review

Rating: 8/10 -- Though a touch overlong and arguably slow - thanks to a focus on separate episodes demonstrating varying virtues - it's an effective, joyous little picture. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Kids reared on the accelerated thrills of modern children's cinema might find the pacing a little lethargic but if you can persuade them to give it a chance, this sweet-natured family classic should work its magic. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- The film - which sticks closely to E Nesbit's original dialogue and glows with a rural, pre-World War One innocence - is a classic in its own right. Full Review
