Catching up on old movies that I missed out on: The Bridge to Terabithia
A deceptively fantasy-filled trailer turns out to be a sweet treatise on the joys of childhood--a totally fantastic and compelling film, bearing testament to friendship and the wonders of childlike imagination. After the plethora of buzz-boom-zing fantasy movies, this laid-back gem will warm your heart and touch your soul. The overall conceptualization and the reined-in use of CGI makes the story pop, be true to itself. Wonderful performances from the child leads and the adult support cast as well.
