"Made with warmth, humor, and wisdom."Vox

"Reflects so much of a plucky little kid... the defiant escape into fantasy, the tough talk in a tight situation, the exuberance and then the fundamental need to return home and be loved and reassured."—Roger Ebert

"Jonze and Eggers have created an intriguing oddity."The Guardian

Inside all of us is...everything we've ever seen, everything we've ever done, and everyone we've ever loved. Innovative director Spike Jonze collaborates with celebrated author Maurice Sendak to bring one of the most beloved books of all time to the big screen — Where the Wild Things Are — a classic story about childhood and the places we go to figure out world in which we live. When rambunctious and sensitive young Max (Max Records) feels misunderstood at home, he escapes to an island where he meets mysterious and strange creatures, the Wild Things, whose emotions are as wild and unpredictable as their actions. The Wild Things desperately long for a leader to guide them, just as Max longs for a kingdom to rule. As leader, Max promises to create a place where everyone will be happy, but he soon discovers that ruling his kingdom is far from easy. Featuring the voices of Chris Cooper, James Gandolfini and Forest Whitaker.
