Please don't tell me you didn't get Where the Wild Things Are. My lands, this was the saddest movie I've ever seen. Tragic--but with flare, and finese, and heart. I was astounded by the depth of emotion I felt while experiencing this movie. Wow. If you see it, try to see it through the eyes of a torn child. It was nearly overwhelming for me. Maybe it's because I've just been reading the tragic autobiographies of 165 8th graders, maybe it's far more personal than that, but I just couldn't stop crying. This was one of those life-changers for me.

Eerie! I just got online this morning to look for some real people reviews of the movie, because I'm taking my neighborhood kids writing group to it this weekend and I wanted to make sure it's as good as I hope it will be.

Yay! I trust your opinion entirely. I can't wait now!
