A Sieve for Treasure,
This review is from: Bridge to Terabithia (Widescreen Edition) (DVD)
'Bridge to Terabithia' is a portal to a better life for children and teens. Not simply a call to exercise one's imagination in an electronic age, 'Bridge...' never goes too far to illustrate kids making best use of their resources, including sifting all the elements of boredom, bullying, and fear that resonate in their lives. Sort of like 'Pan's Labyrinth' for children, country kids Jesse (Josh Hutcherson) and newcomer Leslie (Anna Sophia Robb) both find a land of enchantment that's only a swing on a rope away across the river. Mending their lives and making it more meaningful, they both learn to enjoy and draw--pun intended--from their talents and friendship in their ordinary lives.
Based on Katherine Patterson's Newbery Award winning novel, 'Bridge to Terabithia' is a list topping family movie that adults will love as well.

"Rocky Raccoon" says:
You're always welcome. This film has a heart to go with the hardware. I thought while watching it that I was given a dime store carnival, but the story's treatment is great, and the visuals get more effective as the movie progresses.
