UK based fans can see more of Sarah-Jane Redmond in the children's sci-fi adventure, A Wrinkle in Time. Sky Movies, part of the Sky Digital satellite network is currently screening the film on a regular basis.
Sarah-Jane plays Dr Murray, the mother of a group of young children who are whisked off on a marvellous adventure to rescue their missing father in this modern time film adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's 1963 book, A Wrinkle in Time. Sky describes the film as "A family fantasy with an intriguingly original story". Apart from Sarah-Jane, the 128 minute adventure stars Katie Stuart, David Dorfman, Gregory Smith, Kate Nelligan and an excellent performance by Alfre Woodard. Featuring some excellent special effects and stunning photography for a TV Movie budget, its an excellent film to sit down and relax with the children over Christmas. The film has been given a PG rating, was produced in 2003 and is directed by John Kent Harrison.
For non-UK visitors, A Wrinkle In Time is available at Amazon.com on DVD and VHS Video. The film is also available at Amazon.ca (Canada) on DVD and VHS Video.
