Despite all my cynical, adult sensibilities, and unrealized dreams, I'm completely captivated by the trailer
for this movie. The ten-year old wild thing that lives somewhere in my mind came to instant life, and softly whispered to me: "Please...PLEASE take me to see this movie!". So that's what I'm going to do. I think that we'll have a great time...:) Maybe your ten year old is saying the same thing to you...:)
Dinner before, at a location that will depend on how many people decide to come along...:)
Tickets are not available at Landmark's website
yet, but I'll update when they are.
Innovative director Spike Jonze collaborates with celebrated author Maurice Sendak to bring one of the most beloved books of all time to the big screen in "Where the Wild Things Are," a classic story about childhood and the places we go to figure out the world we live in. The film tells the story of Max, a rambunctious and sensitive boy who feels misunderstood at home and escapes to where the Wild Things are. Max lands on an island where he meets mysterious and strange creatures whose emotions are as wild and unpredictable as their actions. The Wild Things desperately long for a leader to guide them, just as Max longs for a kingdom to rule. When Max is crowned king, he promises to create a place where everyone will be happy. Max soon finds, though, that ruling his kingdom is not so easy and his relationships there prove to be more complicated than he originally thought.
