Product Description

At the turn of the 20th century, three Yorkshire children lost their father; the police took him away, their mother refused to explain why. In a new country home, the lonely children waited and hoped, waving faithfully to passengers on a nearby train each day–until befriended by a kind old gentleman. Could he help bring back their lost father? Jenny Agutter and Richard Attenborough star in a touching adaptation of Edith Nesbit's novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars WILL MAKE YOU WARM LIKE THE STOVE IN THE STATION April 13 2003
Format:DVD
THE RAILWAY CHILDREN IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES, I WOULD CHALLENGE ANYONE TO SAY ANTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL FILM AND THE CHILD ACTORS:)
THIS HAS A HALLMARK HALL OF FAME TASTE, BUT HAS MUCH MORE DEPTH AND ISNT COATED IN SUGAR.
A GOOD WGBH/BOSTON/PBS PRODUCTION- IF TRYING TO LOCATE ?
THIS WOULD MAKE A GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT AND HOLDAY TRADITION TO SHARE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY---A WONDERFUL TURN OF THE CENTURY TALE.
"MICHAEL KITCHENS" (FOYLES WAR), RICHARD ATTENBOROUGH, GREGOR FISHER, AND JENNY AGUTTER SHOULD BE APPRECIATED AND RECOGNIZED FOR THEIR FINE ACTING TALENTS:) FROM EDITH NESBITS 1906 NOVEL.
ORIGINALLY AN E/M "MASTERPICE THEATRE" PRESENTATION---GET THIS DVD NOW?!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Railway Children as Good as Ever Jan. 31 2003
Format:DVD
This is a splendid remake of E. Nesbit's classic children's novel, The Railway Children -- it is as good as the earlier (1970) version, and also, in its way, as delightful and moving as the book itself. Jenny Agutter, who was wonderful as Bobbie in the earlier version, is equally splendid as mother in this; while Jemima Rooper makes a perfect Bobbie, struggling on the threshhold of womanhood. The production is in general careful and imaginative. I have one criticism only -- why, oh why, do those responsible for Masterpiece Theater imagine that we are incapable of appreciating such an offering as this without "commentary" before and after it? There would be something patronizing about such an assumption, even if the commentary said anything worth saying: as it is, we are inflicted with several minutes of Russell Baker mouthing pompous, irrelevant twaddle. Five stars for the movie, and MINUS five for whomever cooked up that nonsense!

This was a super movie to watch as a whole family. The children learning to live in a way that was totally different than they were used to. But they kept their faith and were determined to believe in their father

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice take on a classic movie. Jan. 14 2014
By Mikey

While I thoroughly enjoyed this 2002 production, I prefer the 1970 version which, to my mind, contained more subtle humour.

One observation on the credits above. Why is Jack Blumenau's name listed to the exclusion of Jenny Agutter, Sir Richard Attenbourough and Gregor Fisher.

4.0 out of 5 stars not just for children Jan. 5 2014
By George Jones TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The story of The Railway Children is simple and delightful. Three children and their mother find themselves mysteriously abandoned by their father. With no income, they move from their upper class home and all its comforts to a rustic house in the country. The three children find themselves in the middle of an adventure that leads to help for their family. The mystery of their father is solved. A wonderful family movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting Oct. 12 2013

This story is very lovely and nice to watch over and over again.
Personally I find a touch of romance is added where there is none in the book, but overall the story is quite the same as the printed book. I wish it could have been hi definition.
