There's One in All of Us!
Where the Wild Things Are
Released on October 16th, 2009 this feature film is based on an adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's story, where Max, a disobedient little boy sent to bed without his supper, creates his own world containing a forest inhabited by ferocious wild creatures that crown Max as their ruler. Max is a young boy who feels understood and wants to have fun all the time. After running away from his mother, he discovers a forest with a small lake. Max discovers a small boat within the lake and travels in it to a lost island. It is here where Max's imagination begins to unfold.
Director, Spike Jonze, must have done an excellent job providing visuals to the original children's book, as the film received great reviews in such a small amount of time after being released. The film itself made a total of $32, 695, 407
in it's weekend release and was number one in the top ten box office blowouts for the weekend.
Where the Wild Things Are continues to receive great reviews, as the film has gone up 400 % in popularity on IMDB and was given a rating of 8.2 out of 10.
