From Academy Award nominated director Dominique Monféry comes a sumptuously animated movie about a magic library where all the characters from classic children’s books come alive. 

Nat has fond memories of his eccentric Aunt Eleanor reading to him from her enormous collection of storybooks but is frustrated by his inability to read the books himself. So he is less than thrilled when he learns that his aunt has left him the keys to her attic library as a gift. However, just as Nat’s parents are selling the collection to a shady antiques dealer, Nat discovers that the library is magical – the books are all original first editions of history’s most popular fairy tales, and the famous characters come to life! Now with the help of Alice in Wonderland, the Ogre, Peter Pan and others, he must find a way to get back the books and learn to read an ancient spell to keep the characters alive for future generations of children.

Eleanor’s Secret is a beautifully designed, rollicking adventure in which a boy’s new found ability to read not only sets his imagination free, but saves the day! The film features characters from classics storybooks Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Jack and the Beanstalk, Puss in Boots, Tom Thumb, Little Red Riding Hood, and more!

“Charming! Imaginative! The animation appeals to all ages and parents will appreciate the pro-literacy message at the pic’s heart .”  – Variety

France | 2009 | In English | 80 minutes | Recommended for ages 5 and up.
