They look for original films with courageous and resourceful characters, positive values and hopeful messages. What more could you want from a film? The storylines are heartfelt. You may remember my earlier post this year about the movies LotteGoes South, Lotte from Gadgetvilleand Lotte and the Moonstone Secret. Since we were such fans of these films, I agreed to check out a few of the new films they have.
In Stella and the Star of the Orient, ten-year-old Stella rummages around in her grandmother’s attic. She steps into an antique wardrobe not knowing that the wardrobe is a time machine. Stella travels back 100 years in time. There she meets her own great-grandmother, Clementine, and Gus, Clementine’s younger brother. They introduce Stella as a school friend. Stella is amazed at how women are treated in this century. Stella’s forthright manner and modern slang almost gives away her secret to the grown-ups. Her assertive nature and courage helps her bond together with Clementine and Gus and together they embark on a treasure hunt which solves a family mystery. Stella and the Star of the Orient is in German with English subtitles. This time-travel adventure explores the numerous changes occurring in the past 100 years; in advancing women’s rights; in science and technology; as well as illustrating the rewards of family loyalty. It is for kids 6 and up.
In the film, Emil and the Detectives, twelve-year-old Emil comes to Berlin to spend the holidays with friends. On the train to Berlin, his money is stolen. When Emil arrives in Berlin he has no money and misses his ride because he follows the thief. Emil meets a new friend, Pony. Along with Pony and her street-wise friends, Emil vows to catch the thief and deliver him to the police. This is an adaptation of Emil und die Detektive (1928) with an update for today. It is a story of family and comradeship. This too is in German with English subtitles. This movie is for ages 8 and up.
The Blind Flyers is a heartfelt film featuring two musically gifted teenagers, Inga and Marie, from a school for the blind. These young women work together to help Herbert, a runaway, return to his mother and his country, Khazakistan. While trying to earn money playing music on the streets, the trio encounters the rough edges of the sighted-world. In the end, romance blooms in The Blind Flyers when Marie, Inga, and Herbert create a band so they can enter a televised music video contest. This film is after my heart. My kids are musically inclined and Bill’s grandparents were blind, so I definitely felt a connection with this film. This is a film about inner strengths, unique talents and emotional truths. This film is for ages 10 and up.
As you can see, these are three really great films. That is why I have partnered with Kidflix Global to give one lucky winner all three films! Here’s what you need to do:
