A fairy tale about a boy named Manolo, who faces his fears and is forced to travel between three worlds.   The worlds he is forced to travel through are: here and now, the land of remembering and the land of the forgotten.  His goal was to be with his true love “Maria”.    In the end, Manolo realized that his biggest challenge in life was to be true to himself.  The twists and turns the movie takes open your heart to looking inside of oneself and finding forgiveness and love.  The movie has incredible vibrant colors and art that fill the movie screen with happiness and joy.  This love story celebrates life and the afterlife in a bright upbeat setting while promoting forgiveness.

My Opinion: The most incredible and inspiring movie for all ages is now showing, "The Book of Life."  This fictional story brings to life a Mexican tradition, "The Day of the Dead."  The subject of death is handled very carefully and with the sense that the spirit is always with us. The movie is filled with folk art that is bright and lively. The characters are wooden looking and fun to watch. The movie sound track is a blend of American and Mexican music like nothing I have ever heard before. The movie teaches, inspires and reminds us to forgive and love more. It is a must see with the entire family.
