Description
The Young Visiters, written in 12 days by nine-year-old Daisy Ashford in 1890, was published in 1919 with her spelling intact (hence the title) and has not gone out of print since. This 2003 adaptation stars Jim Broadbent in a BAFTA-nominated performance as Alfred Salteena, "an elderly man of 42," who falls in love with young Ethel Monticue at first sight and promises to introduce her to lords and ladies. Their ensuing adventures in London's 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. Nicholas Hooper's original music won a BAFTA award.
