Keanu is fun, and even sometimes outright hilarious, but it doesn’t live up to the skills of its central performers.
Patrice Leconte's "Monsieur Hire" is a tragedy about loneliness and erotomania, told about two solitary people who have nothing else in common. A report from a panel at Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival about diversity in the light of the 2015 Oscar ceremony. Like all great stories for children, The Secret Garden contains powerful truths just beneath the surface. FFC Gerardo Valero discusses the devolution of Quentin Tarantino by comparing The Hateful Eight to Pulp Fiction. Contrary Mary Lennox is dissatisfied with everything, especially her new home at Misselthwaite Manor. Rekindled interest in Frances Hodgon Burnett's classic tale has prompted a Broadway musical, two TV movies, and this latest big screen version.

There is always a level at which the story is telling children about more than just events; it is telling them about the nature of life.


You will receive a weekly newsletter full of movie-related tidbits, articles, trailers, even the occasional streamable movie. But when a secret key unlocks a long-forgotten garden, more than one gloomy life is utterly transformed.
Mary Lennox is an orphan sent to live in her reclusive uncle's forbidding mansion filled with secrets, including a crippled cousin she didn't know she had.
That was the feeling I had when I read Frances Hodgson Burnett's book many years ago, and it is a feeling that comes back powerfully while watching Agnieszka Holland's new film. Others are so good they seem hardly intended for children at all, and "The Secret Garden" falls in that category. Glowing with luminous imagery of the Yorkshire Dales, and featuring first-rate performances by Kate Maberly and Dame Maggie Smith, this adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic children’s book is a classic in its own right. It is a work of beauty, poetry and deep mystery, and watching it is like entering for a time into a closed world where one's destiny may be discovered.The film tells the story, familiar to generations, of a young girl orphaned in India in the early years of this century, and sent home to England to live on the vast estate of an uncle. Befitting director Holland's reputation this version is beautiful but dark, with children prey to very adult anxieties. Misselthwaite Manor is a gloomy and forbidding pile in Yorkshire - a construction of stone, wood, metal, secrets and ancient wounds.


The heroine, whose name is Mary Lennox (Kate Maberly), arrives from her long sea journey to be met with a sniff and a stern look from Mrs. Medlock (Maggie Smith), who manages the place in the absence of the uncle, Lord Archibald Craven (John Lynch). Mary quickly gathers that this uncle is almost always absent, traveling in far places in an attempt to forget the heartbreaking death of his young bride some years earlier.There is little for Mary to do in the mansion but explore, and soon she finds secret passageways and even the bedroom of her late aunt - and in the bedroom, a key to a secret garden.
He has lived a life of great sadness, confined to his room, able to see only the sky from the windows visible from his bed. Mary determines he must see his mother's secret garden, and she and Dickon wheel him there in an invalid's chair, stealing him out of the house under the very nose of Mrs. Medlock.All of this could be told in a simple and insipid story, I am sure, with cute kids sneaking around the corridors. Holland's earlier work includes "Europa, Europa," a story of a Jewish boy who is able to save his life by passing for a Nazi youth brigade member, and "Olivier, Olivier," another case of mysterious identity, about a long-lost son who may or may not have been found again.I found "Europa, Europa" such an incredible story that I rejected it; what lesson can be learned from the freak survival of one potential victim, while millions died?
