The kids are the champions of their own destiny in this collection of films in which small people make a big difference. Refusing to be side-lined, the children in these films stand up to injustice and dare to take on forces bigger than themselves.By creating their own rules, proving themselves worthy contenders against overbearing adults, and revealing the special solidarity and loyalty that children have to protect what they care about, these plucky kids are inspirational and moving in equal measure.
Some films have a timeless, enduring quality, and are handed down from generation to generation for whole new audiences to fall in love with.These films have the power to make us laugh, cry and think learning a little more about ourselves and the world we live in along the way. What's more, these are films to be enjoyed time and again, by ourselves when we are in a particular mood, or better yet, settling down with friends and family to share the experience and magic for the first or hundredth time.
Expand your horizons and dare to explore places you've only ever dreamed of with the brave explorers in this selection. From crossing boundaries and admirably facing up to new threats, to using escapism and fantasy as a way of helping to process real-life issues, this selection embraces mystery, magic and a pioneering spirit. Whether it's pushing their comfort zone or throwing themselves headlong into a new experience, the heroes of the adventure selection embrace the thrill of the journey as much as the wonder of the destination.
Heroes and villains provide the backbone of some of our most enduring stories. These films prove that heroes can come in all shapes and sizes, from any background and any age. Working alone, or as part of a team these characters inspire us with their feats, even when they are relatively humble. But who doesn't love a great baddie as well? Despite all of the booing and hissing, the truly great villains are more complex than they initially seem, and it is only when our hero encounters their nemesis that their greatest qualities are truly revealed.
