It's heartening to see Ransome's fiction taking on a new and more independent form, suggesting an ongoing relevance for a series of books that could easily be viewed as too dated for modern children. -- Catherine Bray, Variety

Swallows and Amazons still evokes a golden, prelapsarian age when kids were free range and mucking about in boats was the acme of excitement. -- Jason Best, Movie Talk

It is all shocking, and absolutely splendid. The music turns your heart to mush and the performances are flawless, including a cameo from Harry Enfield as the farmer. -- Libby Purves, Daily Mail (UK)
