    I remember growing up watching The Secret Garden (1993) over and over again falling in love with the magic that seemed to be there. Taking two miserably selfish children and seeing them transform into laughing loving children and a father finally coming home to his son touched my soul again and again. It would leave me in tears each time and still does today. This adaptation follows closely to the original story The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

    It’s sort of like playing detective, and I’ve loved mysteries for as long as I can remember: The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, The Hardy Boys, and Nancy Drew were all veritable staples of the literary canon that defined my childhood. I think that, were I accepted into the honors program, I might actually enjoy looking at a couple of other texts I loved as a child: C.S. Lewis’ The Horse and His Boy, for example, and J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden. I…
