The Legend of Longwood is now out on DVD in the US (Canadian release date is June 9th), and it is a great family movie that even your tweens and teens will enjoy. This movie has been brought here by Shout! Factory, a company dedicated to bringing quality television to homes across the country.
Our three boys ages 5, 9 and 12 were hesitant about watching The Legend of Longwood at first, because they thought it would be a girly movie. Still, within minutes of starting the movie, all three of our boys sat glued to the screen. Even more telling is that they watched the movie not once, not twice, but three times over the past couple of weeks. Our 12-year-old son could not stop talking about the movie.
“I really liked the part about the horses, and the dark knight was awesome.”
Mickey Miller is a feisty 12- year old tween girl with a hunger for adventure. She has a hard time adjusting to her family’s move from America to Ireland, but together with her new friend Shawn, she sets out to learn about the Black Knight.
Not long after her arrival at the teardown mill that her family has inherited, Mickey discovers that she is somehow linked to the return of the Black Knight, a legendary ruler who found no peace after his baby daughter was taken from him. A beautiful friendship begins between Mickey and the horse Silver, while Mickey searches for peace for the villagers in Longwood.
