Developing self confidence is difficult for most 14-year-olds, and doubly so for Will Stanton who's recently moved to England. Feeling shy and inadequate in school as well as amongst his five brothers and one sister Will becomes increasingly confounded when he starts to see strange visions. Befriended by four elders of the local community who turn out to be "Old Ones" from ages past, Will learns that his destiny is as a seeker who must travel through time to collect six ancient signs. As Will discovers that he possesses hidden powers and struggles to learn to control them in order to accomplish his quest, he is racked with insecurity and self-doubt. In the end, Will's inner strength will be tested to the extreme as will his relationship with both family and friends. This PG-rated film is loosely based on Susan Cooper's The Dark is Rising novel. Popcorn and pop are provided by the Friends of the James Kennedy Public Library.
