The Spiderwick Chronicles

2008

Mark Waters
Director

A pair of mis-matched twins and their sister become entangled with magical creatures unleashed from a book.

Enjoyable Harry Potter-ish yarn bouyed by good humour and a surprisingly mature look at relationships. Astonishing performance by Freddie Highmore as both twins (abetted by seamless effects). Recommended.
