Fine Print: I was given a copy of the movie for review and the film company is giving a prize pack to a reader. All opinions and statements below are my own.
Have you heard of the film Ernest & Celestine? It was released on DVD and Blu-Ray a few months ago and it is a lovely story of two friends. Featuring the voice talents of celebrated actors including Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, William H. Macy, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman and Jeffrey Wright, this film will leave you and your children smiling.
Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets, tucked away in networks of winding tunnels, lives a tiny mouse named Celestine. Unlike her fellow mice, Celestine is an artist and a dreamer, and has a hard time fitting in. When she nearly ends up as breakfast for a grumpy bear named Ernest, the two become fast friends and embark on an adventure that will put a smile on your face and make your heart glow.
My kids really enjoyed this movie. My son says that the idea that a bear and a mouse can’t be friends is a little “harsh” but other than that it teaches a good lesson. My daughter liked the part where the friends stole a car, camouflaged it with Celestine’s art skills and ran away. (The owners did get it back, so no worries!)
To get everyone excited about this movie, I am giving one lucky winner an Ernest & Celestine Tote Bag Prize Pack!
