The Legend of Longwood DVD Review
The Legend of Longwood will be released on June 10th, 2015!
About: Mickey Miller is a thoroughly modern 12-year-old New Yorker who has little enthusiasm for her mother’s plan to take her and her little brother to start a new life Longwood, a windswept town in Ireland. Their arrival in Longwood, however, coincides with the return of the Black Knight, a legendary ruler whose appearances always mean that something evil is going to happen. Realizing that she is directly linked to the story of the Black Knight, Mickey and her new friend Sean (along with Silver, the wildest, most untamable horse in the stalls of a nearby castle) set out to redeem the knight. But first she must save a precious herd of white horses and thwart the plans of a greedy, ambitious woman: a mighty handful even for the bravest girl!

Our thoughts? If you love horses (which we do!) then you will want to see this movie. It is very unique and of course, the story centers around a young girl and her love for horses. This isn’t your typical horse movie though, there is a lot of mystery and adventure tied in, and it is the kind of movie that grabs the imaginations of children and they are drawn right in. My kids thought that this movie was fascinating – spells, curses, castles and more! I love that it isn’t a story that has been told before. It isn’t predictable. It literally takes you on a journey as Mickey sets out to solve the Longwood mysteries and takes on a very greedy villain in the process.
When I was a young girl, I loved anything horses. I still do, actually–and it turns out that my daughter is the same way. She loved this movie and my son enjoyed it as well, although, I think his interest was more due to the adventure and exciting drama!
