The Secret of Moonacre is a movie with Augustus Prew (Robin de Noir), and Tim Curry. I’ve seen this movie multiple times, and it’s really, really good! It’s definitely appropriate for younger children if they can handle some intense fantasy, and a somewhat darker storyline.
Maria Merryweather is a young girl, recently orphaned, who goes to stay at her uncle’s house in the country. Weird things go on there, and as the plot unfolds, we find out who Maria is, and what she is destined to do!
One of my favorite characters is Robin (Prew). When I watched this movie a couple nights ago with my friend, the actor who played Robin reminded us both of someone, but we couldn’t figure out who. We finally figured it out, but there’s more to Robin than the actor who portrays him.
Robin’s character is really complex (in a good way). PLOT SPOILERS WILL ENSUE.
DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER UNLESS YOU LIKE SPOILERS.
Because he starts out as evil, we really don’t like him. He’s one of those black haired, stereotypical bad boys who you can’t help but have a crush on, but who you hate so much that you can’t even stand it. He’s extremely attractive, but you also don’t like him. As his character develops, we see that he isn’t so bad. When he helps Maria and becomes her friend, his place in our (every girl’s) hearts is secured. You really love him, and your heart goes crazy.
Let me know what you think of the movie, and if you felt the same way I did about Robin!
