Product Description

Fantasy/adventure tale about two children who invent a secret world. Bullied at school, and with worries at home, young Jesse Aaron (Josh Hutcherson) sets his heart on being the fastest runner in the 5th grade. When the day of the race finally arrives however, his dream is shattered when new girl in school, Leslie Burke (Anna Sophia Robb), beats him to the tape. Despite this initial setback, the pair soon realise they have a lot in common, and a friendship develops. Discovering that they both share creative talents, (Jesse loves to draw, while Leslie is a keen storyteller), they invent the magical kingdom of Terabithia, a fantasy world reached by swinging on a rope over a stream near their homes. Once inside Terabithia, they become the rulers of all they see, embarking on magical adventures, fighting evil, and learning how to triumph over bullies.

A kid's film? I don't think so. I think this film should be sold more as Drama. The main characters are young teens, around 13-14 in my view. who find escape from the cruel real world where issues like money and fighting exists to live in their own imagination.

The film closely follows the emotions of the lead character, a young boy, in a rural farming family.

The acting in this film is breathtaking. As is the writing, the characters are brilliant.

I just don't understand why such an amazing piece of art is being sold as if intended for children under 12?? It makes no sense to me. For me this film should be aimed at 12+ With no upper limit.

Very powerful story. Very moving. In my top 5 films of all time.

First things first - if you are expecting a fantasy film like Narnia, stop now. This is not what this film will give you.

However, what it will give is a sweet reward for those that watch it. Here lies a tale of family life, growing up, hardships, love and loss - seen from the eyes of a young boy. For me though, the young female lead is miraculous - an absolute revelation in the role she portrays.

This is an old fashioned story. Not necessarily with a neat start, middle and end, but a journey of learning and growing up.

Hard to categorise - but well worth a look. You'll find it rewarding - though, if watching with youngsters, be aware that tragedy lurks in the film.

My 11 year old son and I went to see this movie on the strength of the Disney TV trailers that really gave a totally false impression of what the film was about (it seemed perhaps it would be a great fantasy adventure similar to 'The time bandits', 'Narnia' or the recent 'Stardust'). In fact the film is more like a standard US teen movie, with typical school yard, home-life and school bus scenes. However the quality of the movie is simply in another league to most teen flicks, and it's got some visually stunning moments (not unlike quality films such as 'Alice doesn't live here anymore' and 'Fried green tomatoes'). It's got an intelligent script aimed squarely at an older kid audience, a fine young/adult cast, and is simply a good movie.

It's not for most, if any, under 9s though as it deals with late preteen/teenager childhood friendship and school problems. It has also got quite a few pretty children's fantasy sequences which my son happily took to be real, Narnia style - and it's not that scary, although it is emotionally intense. I don't want to give away any more of the plot though, just try it for the family as it's ideal to rent or perhaps buy. I can't see many kids watching it often though, as its power works best on first viewing - unless someone ruins it by giving away the storyline. That said, it's likely this will be a childhood movie they will remember.

The book, and film, was based on the author's son's real childhood friendship with a girl schoolfriend (although they were both eight at the time and not twelve as with the character's in the movie). I don't think the themes are unsuitable for older preteens - I enjoyed weepies Old Yeller and Bambi at 5 or 6 and in some respects the movies final scenes are quite uplifting.

4.0 out of 5 stars It wasn't at all what we expected! 4 Jan 2008
I bought this on dvd for my daugters aged 6 and 5. I'd seen the clips of the film and it seemed to be a fairytale adventure in a magical land, even the cover of the dvd suggests this, so when we all sat down to watch it by the end I was quite confused as it was nothing at all like I'd expected.

I expected that my children wouldn't want to watch the film again, thinking that it is too old for them, but they have not stopped watching it! I have since watched it again and now appreciate what a great story it is, portraying complicated emotions so well that you almost feel them yourself. It's a great story, I'm going to get myself the book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Human Drama NOT Sword 'n' Sorcery 24 Jun 2007
If you look on Wiki it appears the producers of this movie disowned the publicity campaign which led the potential audience to believe they were in for a LOTR/Narnia/Elidor fantasy/other world adventure. Not hard to see why as the film is really just a young teen rites de passage drama. It's not a bad story but the average sword 'n' sorcery fan watching this is likely to be left rather bemused and unfulfilled.

The plot has already been covered in the overview, but essentially it's misfit boy from impoverished family befriends oddball new girl in class. "Terabithia" is really just their den in an isolated area of woodland, accessible only by crossing a river on a flimsy swing-rope. The fantasy world and creatures are simply figments of their imagination to pass the time of day. The tragic event two thirds of the way through provides a bit of a shock though not entirely unexpected. Unfortunately this being Disney the whole thing is done in the best possible taste. No Donnie Darko or Heathers style teenage angst and the two main characters barely hold hands. Even the school bullying scenes are toned down and sanitised.

Not really sure which demograph Disney are targeting. It's hard for a story about two young teenagers to sustain the interest of an adult viewer while the events are a little downbeat for a very young audience. If you want human pathos with a sprinkling of fantasy then something like Shymalan's "Lady in the Water" works far better.

With hindsight this film was probably a rental job rather than a purchase. In conclusion, Terabithia is worth watching if you enjoy human drama. However it's important to repeat that if you're looking for epic battles, dragon slayers or even just uplifting fantasy this is NOT on offer here.
