After being orphaned, young Marie Merryweather leaves her luxurious home to live with her eccentric uncle at Moonacre Manor.

Dove Worldview:
This is a charming film about a young girl that finds out that her family comes from a magical mystery land where she is the moon princess. As the Moon Princess, only she can break the curse of the land but to do so she must unravel the secrets to find the magical pearls or that land will be doomed.

With the mythical creatures such as the unicorn to lead her and a black lion to help protect her, she finds that greed and pride are the real cause of the curse in this land. This is a wonderful family movie that will entertain in the same fashion as "The Bridge to Terabithia" with lessons about greed, pride and sacrifice. We are proud to award this film the Dove "Family-Approved" 12+ Seal for ages 12 and older due to some scenes which may be frightening to younger children. This is a remarkable movie!

This is a great film and I encourage you not to be put off by the lack of dialogue. That\'s obviously unusual... [read more]
