Young Visitors, The

The Young Visiters, written in twelve days by nine-year-old Daisy Ashford in 1890, is a surreal blend of naiveté, precocious perception and inadvertent social satire.

Academy Award-winner Jim Broadbent (Iris, Bridget Jones's Diary) stars as Alfred Salteena, 'an elderly man of 42,' who falls in love with young Ethel Monticue at first sight. Promising to introduce her to lords and ladies, he treats Ethel to a visit at the sumptuous country house of Lord Bernard Clark (Hugh Laurie - Stuart Little), the only lord Alf actually knows. Their ensuing adventures in London's colorful high society reveal the young author's alarmingly keen insights into class, the foolishness of adults and the power that young girls have over men. Never out of print since its first printing in 1919, The Young Visiters is a classic that charms adults and children alike.
