Our family recently decided to go see the remake of the beloved kid’s film Pete’s Dragon. I was amazed by the scenery and music as we all entered into the narrative of a boy’s life. We were all transported from our sweltering summer afternoon into the coolness of a dark theatre and then taken into an adventure deep in the wooded home of a lonely young boy.
Our kids are pretty young and have only seen a few movies on the big screen so far, but Pete’s Dragon was worth every penny we spent to go as a family. The low saturated scenes mirrored the emotions of each character as the story unfolded about Elliot’s loss and love.
