Swallows and Amazons

Preview by Jack Foley

SET sail and join an epic adventure in the breath-taking British countryside when the enchanting family adventure film Swallows and Amazons lands on Blu-ray, DVD & digital download from December 12, 2016, courtesy of STUDIOCANAL.

Adapted from the classic children’s tale by Arthur Ransome, Swallows And Amazons tells the story of the Walker children, along with their mother (Kelly Macdonald – Brave, Anna Karenina), who embark on a summer trip to the beautiful Lake District.

Desperate to escape the tedium of the holiday they sail out on their own for the first time aboard the marvellous Swallow. On their explorations they land ashore a seemingly deserted island and claim it as their own.

However they soon realise that they are not alone, with two other children who captain their own vessel; Amazon, claiming the island to be theirs, leading to a battle of wits to determine who will triumph and take the island as their own!

While searching the island’s waters, the ‘Swallows’ also become intrigued by a mysterious man (Rafe Spall – The BFG, Life of Pi) who lives on a house boat and seems to be hiding a dark secret… With Britain on the brink of war, the children find themselves in the midst of an adventure quite different from what they had planned.

Featuring a fantastic British cast including Andrew Scott (Spectre, Sherlock), Jessica Hynes (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Son of Rambow) and Harry Enfield (Scottish Mussel, The Bad Education Movie), Swallows and Amazons brings to life the wonderful children’s novel from 1930, staying true to the classic novel with a sprinkling of silver screen magic.

Introducing this classic tale to a new generation and featuring stunning locations, Swallows and Amazons is a heart-warming adventure for all the family to enjoy this Christmas.
