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
Jeffries coaxes fine, naturalistic performances from all three 'child' actors...
Sight and Sound
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
The Tyee (British Columbia)
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
Gone With The Twins
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
