Synopsis

This adaptation of the 1935 Arthur Ransome novel is full of daring and adventure, as four inquisitive children on holiday in the Lake District embark on the trip of a lifetime. Looking to get away from the tedium of their summer holiday, the siblings are given permission by their mother to camp on their own on a remote island in the middle of a vast lake. They’re delighted, but when they get there they discover they may not be alone and the dangers of the adult world are not as far away as they had hoped. As the adventures continue, the children find themselves learning about survival, responsibility, and friendship. Beautifully shot, this is a charming, gentle film about the great outdoors and looking at the world from a child’s point of view.
