Exiled to the shadows, sinister being Darkness discovers that he can break free if the guardians of the light- two unicorns- are sacrificed for their magical horns. Calling upon his goblins for help, Darkness comes up with a scheme to poison the unicorns and thereby secure his freedom. However peasant boy Jack is determined to protect the creatures within his forest and win the hand of the beautiful Princess Lily, whom he hopes to impress through his connection with nature. Impressive special effects add to the magic in this fantasy starring Tom Cruise, Mia Sara and Tim Curry.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
