In 1925, three brothers (Craig McFarlane, Howard Taylor, Paul Erangey) run away from their strict aunt (Rosalie Crutchley) and attempt to survive on their own in a huge forest nearby. An adaptation of the classic 1944 childrenā€™s novel that was inspired by the authorā€™s loneliness as a child, and love of nature. The latter part is richly represented here, as much of the story and footage focus on the runaway boysā€™ relationship with animals. We follow their adventures in the forest, while clumsy policemen and a scheming reporter try to find them. Inspiring, albeit leisurely paced, stuff for preteens. Haunting music theme.
