Today my lovely boyfriend took me to the cinema to see Where the While Things Are (:
I've been waiting to see it for ages & it was absolutely brilliant, every second of it.
y'know when something is so perfect, as if it came right out of yourself, that it makes you just ache.
There were a lot of kids there, but I definitely wouldn't call it a kids' film. It's intense & incredibly emotional. But also amazingly clever how the writers and director have managed to turn a simple, but beautiful, children's picture book into this deep, emotional story about a lonely, angry child & the way he see the world, & ultimately how he comes to understand how his behaviour effects the people he loves, like his mother, through watching Carol.
It was weird too, but in a good way, & kind of in a scary way, like when Carol breaks off Douglas' arm.
I need to watch it again, to take everything in properly. I could have watched it again right after it finished (: But I guess I'll have to wait until it comes out on DVD!
