Five Children and IT
An enchanting story from Jim Henson's Creature Workshop, adapted from the best-selling children's book by E. Nesbit.

Robert (Freddy Highmore) and his siblings are sent to stay with their mad-as-a-hatter Uncle Albert (Kenneth Branagh) and obsessively anti-social cousin. Things get livelier when the children discover a secret beach and an ancient sand fairy, IT (Eddie Izzard), who grants them a wish a day.

To their great consternation, however, the children soon realise that making really sensible wishes isn't nearly as easy as it sounds.
