King Max rules a wondrous realm of gigantic fuzzy monsters – but being king may not be as carefree as it looks! Filmmaker Spike Jonze directs a magical, visually astonishing film version of Maurice Sendak’s celebrated children’s classic, starring an amazing cast of screen veterans and featuring young Max Records in a fierce and sensitive performance as Max. Explore the joyous, complicated and wildly imaginative wild rumpus of the time and place we call childhood.

Where the Wild Things Are 8.0

I’m amazed that they managed to bring this classic to the big screen. They had to stretch the story a bit, much like ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ had to, except that this vision is more mature (sometimes too mature for young audiences!) and it was not necessarily made for the masses. For fans of the original book and darker-themed childrens’ stories.
