Neve Campbell plays a young woman who moves reluctantly with her modified family to a new house, new country in an adaptation of the Oscar Wilde story. As with most of Wilde's short stories and fairy tales, there is a moral to learn, but the morals he spoke of challenged contemporary ideas. The film is based at a younger audience, but there is much for the older viewer to enjoy too, as was also the way with his short stories. There has been much debate as to whether they, and his fairy tales were designed for children or adults.

The plot follows Neve's character dealing with growing up, life, love with the help of a ghost played by Patrick Stewart. Both leads perform well, with adequate help from veterans and relative newcomers. The film looks gorgeous, but unless you are a big fan of Wilde, Neve or Stewart, you probably won't go out of your way to see it. However, if it is on TV, it is worth watching. 7 out of 10.
