Tolly is a 13 year old boy sent to live with his grandmother in a castle during World War II in England. His father is missing in action and he is determined not to give up hope. At his grandmother's castle, he learns about the family history from his grandmother and travels back and forth in time helping his relatives in a mystery surrounding stolen jewels. This film has a bit of slow pacing so children might be bored at times, but the story is well crafted, the acting superb (many people will recognize actors from the popular Downton Abbey series), and the setting is just the kind of place that children enjoy - a haunted castle. Tolly does a lot of exploring and asks endless questions in part to assuage his curiosity and in part to distract himself from his missing father. Young teenagers who have recently missing or deceased parents will identify with Tolly as will children who enjoy history. Despite the sometimes slow pacing, there is enough intrigue and adventure to keep an audience of teens and parents a like, engaged. Highly Recommended. ( )
