Hello, Mike Field - we haven't met, so of course I can't comment with personal knowledge, but I do certainly agree that you should never see the film.
For TARS - as separate from AR enthusiasts - I hope that you'll all ensure that any young children who you know or even faintly know of get to see this film, which - nearly 100 years on from AR's magnificent achievement in encouraging children out into the world of open air and adventure - is doing the same again, absolutely within the ethos and reason-for-existence of TARS.
My feeling is - and of course I could be entirely wrong - is that Brigit would have been jumping up and down with hilarious glee at this new initiative in pulling children away from their screens and bringing back the magic of outdoors to them. There's a long scene in the film where Mrs Walker and Mrs Jackson talk about getting children out into the natural world. These days it takes different plot devices to do that; I would love it if a ten-year-old would come onto this discussion board to say how they feel about it, but I fear that they won't...
I do hope that we can keep this particular thread as a review of the film, with other discussion held in separate threads. We are a good-quality forum!
