A faithful adaptation of Arthur Ransome's beloved children's book, this delightful film follows the adventures of four children on holiday in the Lake District in 1929. The children sail their boat Swallow to an island where they set up camp, only to discover the island is already the territory of two local girls with their own boat, the Amazon. The Swallows and the Amazons go to war, under the watchful eye of the girls' uncle, an old sailor living on a houseboat with his parrot.

    Swallows & Amazons,

    This film was about a group of children who had an adventure whilst sailing.

    My favourite part was when attacked the old pirate's boat.

    This is a family film, but I don not think it is for very young children as parts were a bit boring.

    'Nuff Said.
