Based on the popular children’s books, Spiderwick is rated PG, and has enough action to keep the whole family entertained. There are some scary parts, I wouldn’t recommend the movie to kids younger than about age 7. Talented young Freddie Highmore (August Rush, etc) has a dual role as twin brothers. One is more skeptical, withdrawn and serious, the other is angry, curious and outgoing. Mary-Louise Parker is the mom. She moves her kids out to her aunt’s old home in the country to start a new job. When their mom is at work, the kids discover that there is more to this old home than they ever imagined. A whole new world of other-worldly creatures opens up!
