Swallows And Amazons – first look


Arthur Ransome’s classic novel Swallows And Amazons has been adapted for the screen for the first time in more than three decades (older readers may remember the 1963 TV series, or the 1974 movie, reviewed at movies4kids here), and this new version stars Rafe Spall, Andrew Scott and Harry Enfield. It’s the story of four children spending summer in the Lake District who happen across an island in the middle of a lake, but discover they are not the only inhabitants.


The movie opens in the UK on August 19th, and in the meantime check out the first trailer:
