"An enchanting film."-The New York Times
Do you believe? Young Frances and Elsie do. They say they've encountered the supernatural. They've met fairies.
The photos the girls take of the winged beings put them at the center of a real-life controversy that sweeps England during World War I. Everyone is caught up in the excitement, including two of the era's most renowned men: Sherlock Holmes author Sir Conan Doyle (Peter O'Toole) and master illusionist Harry Houdini (Harvey Keitel).
Are the girls' photos real or a clever hoax? One thing is for sure: with enchantment, a sense of wonder and glorious special effects, Fairy Tale: A True Story is superb family entertainment.
