Tonight's funny and poignant animated film (US, 2009) tells the tale of "a septuagenarian who teams with a young fearless wilderness ranger to do battle with a vicious band of beasts and villains. Our protagonist, a 78-year-old balloon salesman, has longed his entire life to wander the wilds of South America. Then, one day, the irascible senior citizen shocks his neighbors by tying thousands of balloons to his home and finally taking flight. But he isn't alone on his once-in-a-lifetime journey, because stowed away on his front porch is an excitable eight-year-old wilderness explorer." Through this film, we get to explore loss, risk-taking, aliveness, our dreams and opening our heart in new ways (bring your handkerchiefs).
