The Secret Garden (1987)
Frances Hodgson Burnett's timeless classic is lovingly recreated entirely on location at Highclere Castle in England in this enchanting master-piece of mystery, magic and love for the entire family.
Mary Lennox is a spoiled, willful young girl living in India when her parents die and she's sent to live with a distant family friend in England. The lonely orphan finds the monstrous castle a cold, forbidding place, until she discovers a secret garden that has been locked up since a tragic accident years before. Determined to restore the neglected retreat, she enlists the help of a local boy, Dickon, who has a magic touch with wild creatures, and Colin, the invalid heir to the manor. But the garden is not the only thing being coaxed to life. For just as the seeds they tend with loving care will one day burst into fragrant beauty, so shall their hearts be transformed... and the miracle of love will bloom again.
