Let your imagination run away with this innovative and breathtaking adaptation of the beloved Maurice Sendak book from the visionary mind of Spike Jonze. Max is a chaotic little boy in a wold suit, a 9-year-old destructive force acting out for his loneliness and familial strife. After an argument, he boards a boat and sails to an island of enormous talking beasts. Convincing them he has magical powers, Max becomes their king and they set out together to play rumpus, build forts, and discover secret hideaways. It’s a beautiful and artistic rendition of the power of the childhood imagination.
