The runes Barbara leaves behind are characters from the Nordic 'Younger Futhark' alphabet. See more »
The English girl claims to be from Leeds, England, so should sound lower class northern, instead she has an accent that sounds way more like she's grown up in the Home Counties. For those unfamiliar with this, she should sound more like the new female Doctor Who or the first Doctor of the new series, but instead she sounds more like she should be finding lions at the back of the wardrobe or casting spells with Hermione Granger.

Beatiful story, but if you are expecting action, keep looking
I felt the need to write a review as the ones I have seen are incredibly harsh. This movie is a beautiful parable of a young girls struggle in dealing with the realities of her life told through her avoidance and diving into her vivid imagination and courage of spirit. While I havent seen the trailer all I can say is if you are looking for a Pacific Rim poorly scripted CGI sensory onslaught keep looking, but if you are open to a beautiful heart warming story of fantasy and adventure more akin to The Enchanted Story then this movie is bound to put a smile on your face and will become a staple for kids dealing with sickness and loss. Wonderful to see and deserving of much higher ratings if expectations arent in the action adventure arena.
