Slovenski opis filma:

scenarij: Lindsay Shapero režija: James Hawes v glavnih vlogah: Helena Bonham Carter, Matthew Macfadyen, Denis Lawson, Ramona Marquez, Sinead Michael, Claire Rushbrook, Joseph Millson, Pooky Quesnel, Philip Wright V biografskem filmu Helena Bonham Carter upodobi priljubljeno mladinsko pisateljico Enid Blyton, rojeno leta 1897 v Londonu, ki je s svojimi zgodbami polepšala marsikatero otroštvo. Napisala je več kot 600 knjig za otroke, med njimi sta zagotovo najbolj znani in priljubljeni Pet prijateljev in Nodi. Njeno otroštvo je bilo precej temačno in povsem drugačno od idiličnega sveta, ki ga je tako spretno opisovala. Ko je bila stara 13 let, je oče zapustil družino in tega Enid ni nikoli prebolela, kar se je odražalo v njenem vedenju, ki je bilo večkrat nenavadno. Vlogo žene, poročena je bila dvakrat, in matere, imela je dve hčeri, je skušala usklajevati s svojo ustvarjalnostjo, a zasebno ji je večkrat spodletelo. Umrla je leta 1968 zaradi Alzheimerjeve bolezni.

Originalni opis filma:

Edwardian child Enid Blyton begins to tell stories to her brothers as an escape from their parents' rows before the father deserts the family. Whilst training as a teacher after the Great War she sends her stories to publishers, one of whom, Hugh Pollock,takes her on and also marries her. They have two daughters but Enid is a terrible mother, letting a nanny rear them whilst she, ironically, bestows treats on anonymous children who worship her for her stories. She is completely self-absorbed,driving Hugh to drink and then to another woman. Enid uses the children as emotional blackmail to get a divorce on her terms before marrying Kenneth Waters, a weak man similar to her father. After World War Two she is as popular as ever, despite accusations of using a syndicate to pen her books and will carry on,adored by children who do not know her true nature, for another twenty years and her death in 1968.
