Agnieszka Holland adapted Frances Hodgson Burnetts beloved tale of an enterprising girl (Kate Maberly) who uncovers secrets at her uncles forbidding estate, including an abandoned garden and a neglected boy. Together the children make the garden bloom and transform the lives of all who live there. Janet Maslin wrote in the New York Times: The Secret Garden is elegantly expressive, a discreet and lovely rendering of the childrens classic. . . . [I]t can be seen as celebrating nature as a force for freedom. A perfect afternoon respite for families.
