Beautifully and faithfully adapted for the big screen from Arthur Ransome’s classic novel, Swallows and Amazons is a treat for children and adults alike.
Holidaying with their mother in the Lake District in the 1920s, four children set sail for a nearby island in their boat, Swallow, but soon realise that the island is also the territory of two other girls, whose vessel is named the Amazon. Boasting beautiful period detail, Claude Whatham’s film is an idyllic tale that brings all the excitement and camaraderie of Arthur Ransome’s book to life with wit and humour
