Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Rd Recommends -

When ten-year-old or­phan Lewis (Owen Vac­caro) is sent to live with his Un­cle Jonathan (Jack Black), the last thing he ex­pects is to en­ter a world of sor­cery. In­stead of be­ing a bor­ing rel­a­tive liv­ing in a creaky old house, Un­cle Jonathan is ac­tu­ally a war­lock and the house holds a mys­te­ri­ous se­cret. Its ‘tick-tock­ing heart’ is the source of a mag­i­cal curse from the pre­vi­ous owner (an evil wizard). A fan­tas­ti­cal dance of sur­vival be­gins be­tween un­likely com­rades in sor­cery, which bonds Lewis, his un­cle and their en­chant­ing neigh­bour Florence (Cate Blanchett). To­gether, they must try to save their eerie world from de­struc­tion. Based on the beloved chil­dren’s clas­sic novel by John Bel­lairs, this is a be­witch­ing gothic tale both you and pre-teen kids will en­joy.
