There is however a flip side to that timeliness, at least for this heartbroken US-based critic. We meet her in India during a brief yet heartrending prologue. Mary complies, begrudgingly. For starters, there is the kindly maid Martha Isis Davis , whom Mary befriends while fending off the strict housekeeper Mrs. Medlock Julie Walters. And then there is of course the garden itself, which gets introduced in the story in due course with its robin redbreast, dense vines, and lush flora.
The film, out now on premium video on demand, reimagined the conclusion of the story to better suit its themes and to give its protagonist Mary Dixie Egerickx an opportunity to have more agency. The solution was to literally burn down the stately home, allowing Mary to run inside and rescue her uncle Archibald Craven Colin Firth from the flames — something that does not happen in the novel, which concludes in a much more uneventful way with Archibald simply discovering Mary and his son Colin playing in the secret garden. And I think in the editing it was the hardest thing too. Craven in a very real way. It unites all sorts of dramatic elements, which are an essential part of the story. To film the ending sequence, production designer Grant Montgomery built a massive entry hall and staircase in a soundstage at Pinewood, outside London. But that allowed us to have an imagination about how Misselthwaite would look and that was exciting. While some of the fire was added with CGI, most of the flames were real, with the filmmakers creating a controled burn at Pinewood. The actress feels that adding something with a spectacle to the ending will better suit younger viewers, who expect some drama from their movies and TV shows these days. You still have the s version of the film.
