hmv.com talks to the cast of Swallows & Amazons

For generations of children, particularly those growing up in the UK, Arthur Ransome's classic novel Swallows & Amazons has been one of the most well-known and enduring children's stories, but now director Philippa Lowthorpe is bringing this heartwarming adventure to the big screen.

The film arrives on DVD on Monday (December 12th, it's available to pre-order now on the right-hand side of the page), the film stars Rafe Spall, Kelly Macdonald, Harry Enfield and Jessica Hynes alongside a talented group of young actors that includes Orla Hill, Dane Hughes, Seren Hawkes and Hannah Jayne Thorp.

We sat down with Rafe and Kelly to talk about working on the film and why they think this is a story that is just as popular today as it was when Ransome's story was originally published in the 1930s.
