On her Website Sophie Neville flags up an interview in The Daily Telegraph with producer of the new S&A film, in it he says:

Nick Barton, the film’s producer, said: “We’re aware that we needed to be truthful to the characters of the children, the period, the story itself, but at the same time present a film that could compete with big, modern day action adventure films.

To which I want to ask him 'Why?'

For me such an argument only show how he does not understand the original book.

BBC Films made the same mistake over their version of 'Brideshead Revisited', altering the plot to make a 'better' film and in doing so making a nonsense of the book.
