Swallows And Amazons
Fox Movies Premium, Astro Ch 413/HD Ch 433, 4.40pm Sounds familiar, right? That’s because this is a remake of a 1974 film of the same title, which in turn was based on a popular children’s book series from the 1930s by Arthur Ransome. In this 2016 adaptation, two groups of children meet during a sailing holiday and vie for “control” of a tiny island by pretending to be rival groups of pirates. A mysterious stranger arrives and accuses the children of a crime they did not commit. Oh no! Will they have to go on the run and become a mini A-Team? Cast: Kelly McDonald, Rafe Spall, Andrew Scott, Jessica Hynes and Richard Bremmer.
