BEAUTIFULLY MADE...a combination of nostalgia and the 21st century techniques!
Not only that I have a soft spot for a kid like Norman who doesn't "belong' to the "norm" in what it's perceived to be a standard of society, but the nostalgic feeling which this movie brings you is something to be commended. The background scenes, the colors are vividly so real, not overly done, each characters and some props are delicately handmade (you can see how Norman was made during the critic and other trailers...i.e.: Apple, "featurette - Little Light")...simply AMAZING pieces of art work! One of my favorite scenes was towards the end when Norman's 1-on-1 interaction with "a girl" (I can't go into much detail...), surrounded by beautiful trees...; the color, the way it was shot, the real meaning of this story...coming all together was something extra-ordinary!
Zombies may scare younger kids, but these are no more than the ghosts appearing in everyday cartoons.
The message this movie carries is well-worth to allow a kid to finish watching while they crutch onto you!
