The Secret Garden - DVD - £1.96 Delivered

Excellent price for this version of the classic children's story. Nearest price I can see is £4.45.

Agnieszka Holland's adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic fairy tale, THE SECRET GARDEN is a highly entertaining family picture that is overflowing with gorgeous imagery. Ten-year-old Mary Lennox (Kate Maberly) is a spoiled rich girl living in colonial India with her aloof parents who frequent elegant parties and leave her with servants who attend to her every whim. When her parents are killed, however, Mary's life changes drastically. She's shipped off to England to live in the enormous manor of her father's friend, Lord Archibald Craven (John Lynch), and his invalid son, Colin (Heydon Prowse). Lord Craven, a miserable recluse since his wife's death, ignores his son and leaves the household management to Mrs. Medlock (Maggie Smith), an ironhanded authoritarian. In this cold environment, the children, with help from spirited maid Martha Sowerby and her younger brother, Dickon, manage to find happiness in a special garden hidden away for years. Beautifully shot by Roger Deakins, Holland's film is a visual feast that captures the fantasy like tone of the book without sacrificing any of Burnett's original vision. Zbigniew Preisner's magical score adds another lovely dimension, making this a film that individuals of every age can enjoy.

I've used them a couple times. Excellent service.

The only slight problem today is that there is a 24 hour Postal Strike starting tonight so that will delay things a bit.

switch is normally maestro, think depends on which bank you use?
Uwish are an excellent company, I've used them a few times now and have always received the stuff the next day if i've ordered early enough. infact made an order yesterday and it arrived before 8 this morning.

There was no option for Switch or Maestro on the payment screen. My order's still "processing" apparently though, which I assume is good as I guess it would have failed if the card details were 'wrong'...
