I’m an adult. Thought this film was magical. Not that childish and a great watch for adults too. Very true to the original book, only a little CGI. Some top actors and a beautiful garden/outdoor scenes. Perfect feel-good film for lockdown. Also, great inspiration for anyone coming back from illness. Lovely.
