Kate Muir has had another go at the new S&A film in The Times today. Sensitive AR fans should not read any further. Among her comments:
"The adaptation . . .is an Enid Blyton-style lashings-of-ginger-beer adventure, with trains, planes and spies all thrown in. Ransome purists may be disappointed, but the original story is just too whimsical and tame for children today"
Other comments: "The film is bizarrely enjoyable" (well, thanks). "Jolly japes are had battling over territory" "Ransome experts will probably choke on their Pemmican Spam . ." (Oh very witty!) "but the addition of some peril gives the film a spiffing bit of oomph outdoors, which balances the nostalgic Cath Kidston retro look of many of the interior scenes"
Who is Cath Kidston for heaven's sake ??
This sneering Metropolitan-minded review is a disgrace.
