About The Secret Garden
The Secret Garden, a Sky original, tells the story of Mary Lennox (Dixie Egerickx), a 10-year-old girl sent to live with her Uncle Archibald Craven (Colin Firth), under the watchful eye of Mrs Medlock (Julie Walters), with only the household maid, Martha (Isis Davis) for company. The film is set in 1940s England at Misselthwaite Manor, a remote country estate deep in the Yorkshire Moors.
Mary begins to uncover many family secrets, particularly after chancing upon her cousin Colin (Edan Hayhurst), who has been shut away unwell in a wing of the house. Whist exploring the grounds of Misselthwaite Manor, Mary discovers a wondrous garden and meets a local boy, Dickon (Amir Wilson), who helps her fix stray dog Hector’s injured leg using the garden’s restorative powers. The three children adventure deep into the mysteries of the garden – a magical place that will change their lives forever.
