Storyline

When 13 year old Maria Merryweather's father dies, leaving her orphaned and homeless, she is forced to leave her luxurious London life to go and live with Sir Benjamin, 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 that she is the last Moon Princess and, guided by an unlikely mix of allies, she must overcome her family's pride in order to unearth the secrets of the past before the 5000th moon rises and Moonacre disappears into the sea forever. Written by Monica Penders

Awesome movie for all Fairy Tale Lovers!
9 March 2011 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I really found this movie to be a fantastic fairytale! I love fairytale movies, and this one was quite creative and the acting was also very good! I have been quite disappointed with many of the recent fairy tale like movies that have come out, when even the story line could be good, the acting has been horrible. I hate it when, even in a fairy tale, the acting seems unrealistic. The whole point of a fairytale is take the viewer away into a magical world and make them believe it is real! This movie does that quite well! This movie is a must see for anyone who enjoys escaping for a bit into a believable yet make believe world! :) Highly recommended! :)
