The Legend of Longwood is a wonderful family film for all ages due out on June 2 from Shout!Factory. This movie takes place in the beautiful countryside of Ireland and Germany. It begins when Mickey's mom decides to move her, her brother and herself to Ireland to live in a rundown mill house they have inherited. Mickey is devastated about having to leave New York, but since her dad has been missing for 4 years, her mom can't afford to keep them living in New York.
Moving to Ireland seems like they have left all civilization to Mickey. One day Mickey makes friends with a boy named Sean and he tells her about the castle and the horses there. Mickey loves horses and she is very curious about the 7 horses at Longwood. Sneaking around the stables, Mickey is found and taken inside to meet Lady Thyrza Du Monceau who is over the castle and she knows all about Mickey and her necklace. She also tells Mickey about a fire many years before that killed 7 children and how the Lord of the mansion had his baby daughter Madeline stolen. Now the ghost of Longwood haunts the town and the people, leaving bad things to happen when he appears.
Watch a clip from the movie here.
When Thyrza dies suddenly the castle is passed down to her nephew Mark, who is planning to marry Caitlan who is very stingy and wants to turn the castle into a huge development without the horses. It doesn't take Mickey long to figure this out and she begins to go about stopping her. Dangerous things begin and Mickey hears the voices of the 7 children who are now living through the horses. Mickey knows she has to help find out about Madeline the missing daughter of the knight, save the castle, the horses and prove Caitlan is the one trying to mess it all up.
I love this movie! The horses are gorgeous and so is the country this movie is filmed in. This story will have you rooting for Mickey as she goes through many obstacles to save Longwood and solve the mystery. I won't tell you how it ends because I don't want to spoil the ending for you, but believe me it is awesome. This movie is a must for horse lovers everywhere and any family who just wants to watch a good movie. I highly recommend it! Order yours today before it is released to the public from Shout!Factory.
