Where the Wild Things Are

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Spike Jonze, Spike Jonze
2009 / 101min / DCP

Too rowdy and rambunctious at home, sensitive eight-year-old Max makes his escape to a place where the play is a little rougher and the playmates a lot bigger and hairier—an island populated by mischievous monsters for whom self-control is a fully foreign concept, who nominate Max to be their king. A sweet-spirited adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s cherished children’s book, with James Gandolfini giving a quietly devastating vocal performance, alternately gentle and menacing, as a perilously tantrum-prone Wild Thing named Carol.
