This Wednesday we attended an early screening for Home It was absolutely amazing! Let’s begin with the obvious appeal…. The main character is a strong and brave brown girl by the name of Gratuity! Of all the films I have taken my little to see (and she is quite the little aficionado) this is the first time there has been a film that made a huge effort to be inclusive of varied shades of the human race. Let alone a brown main character! Watching the theatre fill with little brown girls with curly hair, I was literally over joyed that Dreamworks created this film. Representation is so necessary! The storyline centered heavily on the importance of family as well as individuality. The value of family and the lengths in which loved ones will endure to stay together. The movie is rated PG so for the sensitive be mindful that the words stupid and idiot were used once or twice ,and I was a little confused as to why there was no explanation about the absence of her father. However, none of these things were a distraction to the theme of love and loyalty that in the end saved everyone. This is absolutely a movie I look forward to adding to our collection and watching over and over! Don’t walk …run to the theatre with your family for this awesome film.
