A charming film for all the family, but children in particular will enjoy this.
It is surprising that this film hasn't been more well-received. It is well-presented and filled with authentic people (obviously many of those who appear in the film were professional circus performers).
The direction was natural and low-key, which allowed the performance of Brittany Bristow (Sophie, the main character) to captivate the audience... our pre-teen daughter liked it a lot. The story was believable and also compelling
Was it as fast-paced and heart-thumping as the big-feature films put out by the likes of Disney, Pixar and other major studios? No, but the plot moved along and it made sense. The fact that it was set n a "real" place made it all the more refreshing.
Of course, it was also nice to see John Rhys-Davies as well... All the more reason to get your hands on this film.
Give your children--and yourself--a treat.
