(1993, 101 min)
Director: Agnieszka Holland
Based on the classic children's novel by Frances Hodges Burnett, this feature film tells the story of orphaned Mary Lennox (Kate Maberly), who has been sent to live with her uncle (John Lynch) in a gloomy house in Yorkshire, England. Mary stumbles upon a neglected garden and enlists the help of a local boy, Dickon (Andrew Knott), to bring it back to life, creating a magical and healing place. The cast of this enchanting tale includes Heydon Prowse as Mary's sickly cousin Colin and Maggie Smith as the housekeeper, Mrs. Medlock. This screening coincides with the exhibition Romantic Gardens: Nature, Art, and Landscape Design.
