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
I felt so sorry for her 2 children. What a selfish egotistical woman she was. I grew up reading her books and still love them even today. I knew for many years that she wasnt exactly mother earth but this movie was a real eye opener if even half of it isnt exaggerated.
seriously that is wrong with this woman is she a english writer counter part to joan crawford? I mean seriously I bet the two would get along famously be each others biggest fans. Neither one of them could care less for their children that they both fought to have. What just to ignore them and mis treat them and love their fans more than they could ever love the ones they were supposed to love their children. Its always about them them them and everyone else is to blame for their short comings Yes this is such an english version of Mommy dearest
Acclaimed actress Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd) leads the cast in Enid Blyton.
Banned for over 30 years from BBC Enid Blytons books where controversial.
One of the most recognized storytellers of all time, Enid Blyton's charming characters and classic tales have enchanted countless generations of children all over the world for almost 80 years.
Having sold over 500 million books in 40 countries, this one-off drama follows the woman behind the enduring and compelling stories such as the beloved Famous Five, Secret Seven, Malory Towers and Noddy series.
She was traumatized at an early age and could not cope with
the pain of what life brought her therefore, she created her
own story in order to survive. It's locking away the pain for
fear it will destroy you, but NOT facing that pain will.
Great acting, always enjoy a BBC production. 10/10
What a dreadful person she was in her private life. I think she lived in Noddy Land herself most of the time.
Just goes to show never trust a persons character by what they write.
Very depressing film. A real .. that's what she was.
