I hate to admit it but I got a little misty-eyed just watching the trailer.

Oh good!

It reminds me of the Shire.

That scene where he dances for Babe. sniff.


It is a great movie. Haven't watched since the year it came out so I am due for another viewing!

Haven't watched it since my daughter was little, but great movie!

Lovely review, Louise. What you said about some youngsters maybe being worried about "certain animals becoming dinner" reminded me that I had wondered about that when my animal-loving granddaughter was small. Didn't bother her a wink, though; she just kept on eating meat with gusto.

Once when I took a tour of Little Portion Hermitage, the sister told us that they called their calf Brother Burger to remind them of his purpose in life. ;-)


When my siblings and cousins and I were raising steers for 4-H we gave them names like T-Bone and Sirloin.

In a Jeff Nichols movie those would be the names of the cousins.


Im going to take a look if it is on the menu when I'm on an airplane

That is probably the most colorful picture that has ever been on this blog. Every time I see it, it shocks me.


Most colourful picture! Do I get a prize?

It is a wonderful movie... though I, too, need to see it again, because it's been a long time. I will follow your suggestion and buy it, so I will have it on hand when family are around. It's the kind of film all of us could enjoy. In our case, even most of the youngest (farmy) children.

And your story of when you first watched it is sweet, too!

Thanks Gretchen Joanna. :)
