Product Description
Kelly Macdonald and Rafe Spall star in this family adventure adapted from Arthur Ransome's classic novel set in the 1920s. While on holiday in the Lake District with their mother Mrs. Walker (Macdonald) four siblings - John (Dane Hughes), Susan (Orla Hill), Tatty (Teddie-Rose Malleson-Allen) and Roger (Bobby McCulloch) - set sail on a boat named Swallow and discover an island. As they begin to explore they realise the island has already been claimed by sisters Nancy (Seren Hawkes) and Peggy Blackett (Hannah Jayne Thorp), who have their own vessel called the Amazon. Meanwhile, the sisters' mysterious uncle Jim Turner (Spall), who lives in a houseboat and is thought of as a pirate by the Walker children, has become the target of secret agent Lazlow (Andrew Scott). When Jim is taken captive the Walkers and the Blacketts put aside their rivalry and band together on a mission to discover what happened to him. The cast also features Jessica Hynes, Richard Bremmer and Harry Enfield.

just one review
Apart from the location and the names of some of the characters, this film has nothing to do with the plot, characterisation or anything else of Ransome's book. It is a travesty and the writer and producers should be ashamed of themselves. Other reviewers have mentioned the appalling changes to the interactions in the Walker family, the changes to the other main characters, and was it so hard to find an Australian actress to play Mrs Walker that she suddenly becomes Scottish?

If you want to make a film about Russian Spies in 1935, write a new one, not totally screw up a classic story about children.
the bbc up too its usual tricks.

If you scroll down, it's still £2.01 & prime. Not a bad film if viewed on its merits & not its adherance to the book. My kids enjoyed this one. Thanks op heated.

94% on rotten tomatoes... the writer and producers are probably pleased with themselves rather than being ashamed.

Cheap but an abysmal rendition of the book.

Considering your such a film connoisseur,I am sure that you’ll be aware that any score over 60 is considered fresh... resulting in a very happy production team. Have a good nights sleep 😴.
