The Seeker - The Dark is Rising


Legend tells us of a group of immortal warriors who defend the earthly balance between light and dark. To protect the light, they have divided its power into six signs, which they have hidden throughout time. This is the premise of The Seeker: The Dark is Rising, based on the acclaimed novel by Susan Cooper and the first film adaptation of the author’s acclaimed The Dark is Rising sequence written in the 1960’s and 1970's. Now, don’t get your hopes up in thinking that the film is an accurate retelling of the book. It does take a few turns of its own. For instance, Will Stanton is no longer an 11-year-old English boy, but and a 14-year-old American boy who lives in our present-day England, where the sporting of cell phones and ipods is quite common and expected.

However, the tales begins during the winter. Christmas is closing in, and Will Stanton’s large family is commencing its celebration, as well as Will’s birthday. Life would be considered fine for Will, if it weren’t for the cruelty of his brothers towards him. Even, the family dog shows its dislike for Will by constantly growling at him. However, kindness is given from his only sister Gwen (Emma Lockhart), and his distant brother, in the military. Regardless, Will’s life is turned upside down when strange things start to happen to him. His eyes begin to play tricks on him and he starts seeing things. He even finds himself accused of shoplifting by someone who is obviously not human.

Suddenly, Will discovers that he is the seventh child of the seventh child and is the last of a group of warriors who have dedicated their lives to fighting the forces of the Dark. Charged with the quest of locating and restoring the six separated signs of the Light, Will must travel back and forth throughout time, with the help of a group of people called the “Old Ones,” uncovering a series of mysterious clues, some dating back to the founding of Britain, and others going all the way back to biblical times. Each discovery leads Will closer to the showdown with forces of unimaginable power. And, with the Dark once again rising, it is up to Will, the only one who can spot the six signs, to secure the future of the world.
