Title: Where The Wild Things Are
Year: 2008 (Yup you read correctly)
Cast: Max Records, Catherine Keener.
The plot is pretty straight forward- Max is playing at home one evening dressed in a wolf costume. Having teased the dog and worried his mother to distraction, as punishment he is sent to bed without supper. In his room, a mysterious, wild forest grows out of his own imagination....where fearsome-looking monsters abound. Max conquers them with a scary look and he is made the King of the Wild Things. One day, lonely and homesick, and he returns home to his bedroom......to the same moment he had left at.
But the plot isn't the big deal about this movie- what is important is the interweaving of animation with "real" people and special effects. Despite all the effects etc, Where the.... does nothing for me- its probably just me...
Not to miss: James Gandolfini! James Gandolfini! James Gandolfini!
