FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE FEATURE NARRATIVE

FIVE CHILDREN AND IT

TFF 2005
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE FIVE CHILDREN AND IT [TFF 2005]

This magical adventure begins when the five Butterworth children are shipped off to live in their eccentric Uncle Albert's (Kenneth Branagh) mansion, after their parents leave to serve in World War II. Robert (Freddie Highmore), the most adventurous of the children, discovers a forbidden and magical seaside. Together, the siblings unearth a Psammead, an ancient, irritable sand fairy named "It," voiced by the hysterical Eddie Izzard, who can grant wishes that last only until sunset. Countless misguided wishes turn into adventurous and humorous mishaps. But when news of their father's death reaches home, the kids realize there are more serious things to wish for. This moving and beautiful film is based on E. Nesbit's children's classic by the same name. (Ages 6+)
