Plot Summary:

A new big screen version of Frances Hodgson Burnett's 1911 novel "The Secret Garden." Set in England, "The Secret Garden" tells the story of Mary Lennox played by Dixie Egerickx, a prickly and unloved 10-year-old girl, born in India to wealthy British parents who never wanted her. When her parents suddenly die, she is sent back to England to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven (Colin Firth) on his remote country estate deep in the Yorkshire moors. There, she begins to uncover many family secrets, particularly when she meets her sickly cousin Colin (Edan Hayhurst), shut away in a wing of the house. It is a story of two damaged, slightly misfit, children who heal each other, partly through their exposure to a wondrous secret garden, lost in the grounds of Misselthwaite Manor. Julie Walters will play Mrs Medlock, the head housekeeper at Misselthwaite.
