    How do you know if you are a bad person?
    Where the Wild Things Are can stimulate discussions about the frustration of revenge, the sickness of despair, and why people crave leadership. Where the Wild Things Are can also inspire talk about what it means to be a "bad person," and how to find peace in a troubled world.
    Film Synopsis: Max is having problems at home. When he finally goes out of control, and his mother calls him a "wild thing," he bites her and then runs away. When he comes upon a lake, Max's world is magically transformed. He gets into a boat, sets sail, and finds himself where the wild things are. Sensing that he is kin to them, the wild things make Max their king. But Max soon discovers that, despite all the benefits of being the absolute boss, he is unable to set right all of the conflicts on the island. This screen adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's story makes for a good introduction to discussions about human will, sin, love, and reconciliation.
    Genre: Fantasy
    Rating: PG
    Content Advisory: Where the Wild Things Are contains some elements of family conflict, fantasy adventure, and brief vulgar language. It is a rather dark film that is more challenging to adults, than appropriate for kids.
