When three children in a rural corner of Lancashire find a fugitive hiding in a barn on their family's farm, it begins an even more dramatic series of events. The children, led by Kathy, the eldest, aren't aware this stranger is on the run from the police - in fact, they think he's Jesus, and so when he asks them to keep his presence there a secret, they agree without question. But secrets aren't always easy to keep - and soon word has spread among the children of the nearby village of the man in the barn, leaving Kathy desperate to stop any adults finding out as well. This fine British drama is still as powerful now as it was when it was first released back in the early 1960s.

    I didn't really like this film, but that is my opinion. I was a bit shocked when the boy slapped the girl around the face.

    This film was in the middle. When it said there was a murderer in it, I expected it to have some murdering in it. Not gory though. However, the best character is the bully.( Some people may have different opinions).
