Movie Info

A boy spending time with his family makes some very unusual friends in this comic fantasy from director Julian Fellowes. It's 1944, and Tolly (Alex Etel) is a boy from Manchester whose mother (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) isn't convinced he's safe in the city while World War II is still on, especially since his father went missing while serving in battle.

This family film - that mixes Regency ghosts and a rambling, secret-filled mansion - lacks oomph and charm despite its top shelf cast, including Maggie Smith and Timothy Spall.

The biggest problem standing in the way of the film's success is that it is neither a full-on family film nor a grown up drama - and the ending is both sombre and flat.

Casts a magical spell by the touching conclusion.

Audience Reviews for From Time to Time

I just love this kind of movie. Delightful. Heartwarming. Historical. Imaginative...in a good way. This was a sweet English drama for young adults, and people like me.

I liked it a lot more than most I guess. I thought it was sweet and a fun mystery for young adults.
