Dreams do come true
Emma Watson (Hermione in Harry Potter) stars in this heart-warming and uplifting film based on the beloved, best-selling novel by Noel Streatfeild and featuring an award-winning cast that includes Emilia Fox, Victoria Wood, Richard Griffiths and Eileen Atkins. 'We three Fossils vow to put our name in the history book, because it is ours, and ours alone
' With these words, three orphans embark on an exhilarating journey that takes them to the heights of the stage, screen and sky. Pauline (Watson), Petrova (Yasmin Paige) and Posy Fossil (Lucy Boynton) are adopted as infants by eccentric explorer Professor Matthew Brown (Richard Griffiths), whom they affectionately call Great Uncle Matthew (or 'Gum' for short). When 'Gum' goes missing, his niece Sylvia (Emilia Fox) keeps the family together by taking in lodgers and eventually enrolls the girls in the Children's Academy of Dancing and Stage Training. This suits the ambitious Pauline, who longs to act, and Posy, a natural dancer, but Petrova, who yearns to become an aviator, has her own dreams of soaring the skies. The girls' lives in show business are filled with triumphs and lessons learned until 'Gum's' surprise return provides the perfect happy ending for them all.
