The Legend of Longwood on DVD ~ #Review

My daughter and I enjoyed watching The Legend of Longwood.  This movie is a little dark with mystery, evil villains, curses, and a Black Knight.  It is about a girl who loves horses.  Just like my daughter.  Her and her family decided to move to the beautiful land of Ireland.  It is an amazing story about a small town that has been cursed and Mickey Miller, the heroine of the movie that has the ability to break the curse.  It is a touching story how much Mickey loves the horses and she does anything to save them even making a horse  jump that she is frighten to do because it caused her leg injury.  There is a cruel evil greedy woman you will all hate.  You have to wonder how she managed to get away with her evil doings until the very end.  Mickey got her hands full trying to saving the horses and the town from the curse, as well as defeating the evil lady Caitlin.  It is a great movie to watch.

The Legend of Longwood on DVD

A beautiful new film out of Ireland, The Legend of Longwood, is coming to DVD on June 4 from Shout! Factory, following its appearance at several film festivals in early 2015. An adventure for all ages, the release includes a fascinating behind-the-scenes featurette as a bonus feature.

Crumbling castles, mysterious riddles, frightening spirits, beautiful horses and a plucky, fearless heroine - director Lisa Mulcahy has lovingly burnished the most beloved coming-of-age elements in this "quest" film, set in the starkly beautiful landscapes of rural Ireland, set to music from Brave composer Patrick Neil Doyle.

The film stars Lucy Morton as Mickey Miller, a thoroughly modern 12-year-old American girl whose great love is horses. Not surprisingly, she has little enthusiasm for her mother’s plan to take Mickey and her little brother to start a new life in a run-down mill she has inherited in Longwood, a windswept Irish town at the end of the world. Mickey’s presence in Longwood coincides with the return of the Black Knight, a legendary ruler who found no peace after his baby daughter was taken from him, and whose appearances always mean that something evil is going to happen to the villagers. Mickey hears and sees things that others can’t, and forms an immediate bond with Silver, the proudest, haughtiest, most untamable horse in the stalls of a nearby castle. Realizing that she is directly linked to the story of the Black Knight, Mickey and her new friend Sean set out to redeem the knight so as to bring lasting peace to Longwood. But first she must save the lives of seven horses and thwart the evil plans of a greedy, ambitious woman – a mighty handful even for the bravest girl!
