There is a new movie that comes out today in Canada called Where The Wild Things Are. It is based on a children’s book by Maurice Sendak. This was a book that I read as a child, but it was actually published in 1963. If you want to know more about this book you can click here. The main character’s name is Max. He is sent to his room and goes on to imagine a world of ‘wild things.’
Here is a reading of the children’s book that I was lucky enough to find on youtube. The original illustrations are pretty beautiful.
Now that you know the children’s story, check out the new movie. It looks awesome! Adults are really enjoying it. And best of all, the critics love it too. The music in the video below is by Arcade Fire which is a band originally from Montreal. I think their music with this movie is a great combination. Enjoy!
