“A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be curious, and to fight tirelessly for something.” ~ Paulo Coelho
In this rapidly evolving and spiritually in-tune day and age, good children’s films can be hard to come across. Never mind the fact that we probably shouldn’t be keeping them indoors watching a screen, sometimes a well placed and well-written film can add to an impressionable mind and even give them that glimpse of – something that’s rare for the marketable world of children’s film – the real magic of life. I’m not talking about the impenetrable and whimsical sort of magic, like fairies at the bottom of the garden type detachment that leads the next generation to want to spark lights out of their fingertips and get frustrated when they can’t, but that all knowing and goose-pimple-inducing magic that breathes and weaves through all of our lives.
My favourite, however, is this one, THE BOOK OF LIFE (2014)
