The Secret of Moonacre (U)

DAKOTA Blue Richards is a young orphan girl who uncovers a magical secret.

She plays 13-year-old Maria Merryweather who is forced to leave her luxurious London life to go and live with Sir Benjamin (Ioan Gruffudd), an eccentric uncle she didn't know she had, at the mysterious Moonacre Manor.

Soon Maria finds herself in a crumbling moonlit world torn apart by the hatred of an ancient feud with the dark and sinister De Noir family.

Maria discovers she is the last Moon Princess and, guided by an unlikely mix of allies, she must uncover the dark truth of an ancient curse that has been afflicting Moonacre Valley for centuries.

She has only until the next full moon to undo the curse and save Moonacre from destruction.
