We had a movie afternoon at the study room today. Disney's Tuck Everlasting won a Scholastic Award for meaningful movies so they used it in High Schools for discussion.
This charming movie comes with a series of discussions throughout the movie about the issues raised in the story which was written by Natalie Babbit. A Family becomes immortal and ageless by drinking from a pool of water. Turns out not to be a blessing for them. The movie is beautifully acted and filmed. I will be interested to see how Pirates of the Caribbean IV deals with the fountain of youth myth.
