This bank holiday weekend sees the release of MARY AND THE WITCH’S FLOWER, in the UK. The stunning family adventure from the makers of Studio Ghibli classics Arrietty and When Marnie Was There. The film features an outstanding voice cast including Kate Winslet (Triple 9), Jim Broadbent (Eddie the Eagle), Ewen Bremner (The Veil of Twilight), Louis Serkis and Ruby Barnhill (The BFG)as the voice of Mary, and is adapted from Mary Stewart‘s beloved children’s classic, The Little Broomstick.
Mary is a young girl who arrives in the village of Redmanor to stay with her Great-Aunt Charlotte. After discovering a ‘fly-by-night’, a rare flower that blooms once every seven years, Mary is spirited away to Endor College, a college for young witches and warlocks. There, she meets Madame Mumblechook and Doctor Dee, who celebrate her arrival under the belief she is an all-powerful witch. But in a world of incantations and transformations, all is not what it seems. Mary will have to summon her inner strength if she is to understand the true power of the Witch’s Flower.
