Everyone will love this charming, upbeat adaptation of a literary classic.  Mary Lennox ("Such A Difficult Child") is sent to live in England after her parents die in India.  Misselthwaite Manor turns out to be a gloomy fortress.  Her uncle is rarely home and his young son, Colin, never leaves his room, convinced he's an incurable invalid.  Mary discovers a strange walled garden that has been locked up for years.  With the gardener's apprentice, Dickon, a lad who can talk to the animals, Mary coaxes the garden back to life.  The garden seems to have a wonderful, magical effect on all who come into it, allowing Mary to help restore Colin to health and a reunion with his father.
