Just watched Whale Rider for the tenth time!
Just watched Whale Rider for the tenth time. I just love this movie. It really inspires me, and makes me really want to make spiritual movies like that. For families watching the film, it is good for kids six and above. There is one drug reference but it’s so hidden that smaller kids won’t notice. The only other thing is a scene where an 11 year old is smoking. But the main character deals with this and tells him he should not be smoking. For girls it’s a great film about strength and courage and being true to yourself no matter what. Spiritually, it shows that there is more to life than the physical. It’s just a really good film over all. Very inspiring. I’ve watched it many times and I am still not tired of it. A real work of art. This is the kind of film you can keep in your family collection and watch over and over again.
Here is a really moving scene:
