After the death of her father, Pollyanna moves in with her downcast, embittered aunt (Amanda Burton, Silent Witness) to the beautiful English village she now calls home. Soon, Pollyanna charms everyone in Beldingsville, sharing a game her father taught her - the “Glad Game” - with the townsfolk. In doing so, she befriends Mr. Pendleton (Kenneth Cranham, Maleficent), Mrs. Snow (Pam Ferris, Call the Midwife), and Nancy (Kate Ashfield, The Diary of Anne Frank). However, despite her best efforts, Pollyanna is unable to charm her cold-hearted aunt who, refusing to see the brighter side of life, is immune to Pollyanna's bright outlook on life.
Aunt Polly, despite her vast wealth, impressive estate, and numerous servants, treats young Pollyanna more like a stranger than a relative. Yet, when tragedy strikes, Pollyanna’s sunny outlook persuades her aunt to confront past ghosts and embrace the promise of happiness.
"Pollyanna" is based on the classic novel by Eleanor H. Porter, and is a treat sure to be treasured by the entire family.
