Enchanting movie. The depiction of the fairies in the film is magical and very realistic. The two young girls in the film are trying to prove that fairies do exist and have a photograph as evidence. This movie is based on an actual incident that took place in England and was eventually debunked. However the film portrays the fairies and the photograph as real. Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
