Mori Movie Finds: The Secret Garden 1987
Today I have another movie find for you all, this time one of my childhood favorites: The Secret Garden (1987 Hallmark Version).
There are many versions of this classic tale by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and all of them are worth watching. However, my all-time favorite version to date is the Hallmark adaptation. There are certainly ones with better quality camera work, or prettier costumes, but this movie has its own charm and, in my opinion, is the truest to the themes and the feeling of the original novel. It has a great portrayal of the characters, the manor feels mysterious, as does the garden, and it never fails to pull me in every time I watch it! Plus, I love their depiction of Dicken! He's one of my favorite characters of all time, so it's great to see him portrayed well!
You can actually find the entire movie on youtube at the moment, so I'd recommend giving it a watch if you're interested. It's an enjoyable watch and a charming story!
Have you seen this, or any version, of The Secret Garden? If so, how did you like it? If not, I hope you enjoy it!
