This sweet and smart tale about forming unexpected bonds in the face of war follows siblings evacuated from Manchester to a Yorkshire village during the Second World War. A sequel to the 1970 film The Railway Children, itself based on the beloved children’s book classic by E. Nesbit, the film expands on the original story with refreshing new plotlines and characters. Star Jenny Agutter reprises her role from the original film 52 years later, making it the fourth adaptation she’s appeared in.
“It’s an amiable and ingenious tribute to the innocent, good-natured spirit of the original.” — Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
