Bedknobs and Wardrobes​: A review of Swallows and Amazons

I don’t have a lot to say about this Film. I’m not familiar with the book it was based on and thus I didn’t have any real preconceptions about what it would be like. I heard it had averagely good reviews and from the trailer, I was excepting a small, charming, very British film where precocious children would end up foiling the plot of an international spy.

And that’s what I got. For the most part.

It’s exactly what you would expect. It’s warm and very British, with a cosy aesthetic and some great performances, particularly from the children. It’s a bit The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe meets Bedknobs and Broomsticks and it’s solidly put together.

However, It’s slight and though it won’t change the world it’s a charming Sunday afternoon film to have with some tea.
