One of the films I'd recommend to A.I. fans is Whale Rider. I missed it in theatres, but because of the many awards it won I got interested in seeing it. And what a wonderful film it is.

Like A.I. it is sure to have an emotional impact. It feels like a wonderful little film, and it's also much of a fairy tale. The cast is great - made out of complex and strong characters. There's really nice music as well, but most of all Whale Rider tells a story that will simply melt your heart. Smile

In that way, it's a lot like Artificial Intelligence. Sure, it isn't as large and epic-looking, but its ultimate goal (which I'd presume would be reaching its audience) is well achieved. Whale Rider is rather amazing, so do check it out if you haven't done so yet. Wink

I just watched this film again and was brought to tears. Keisha Castle-Hughes was so amazing in that film. I watched it with the audio commentary on, and there are many scenes where the diretor said that Keisha brought the whole crew to tears with her performance.

Yeah, isn't it great?

Just saw Around the Bend again this very evening, and was brought to tears as well. Such awesome and powerful performances. These films get to me everytime I see them.

Now that you have reminded me, I'll have to watch Around The Bend again. We are of a mind on these ones, Busara.

Have you seen, The Boy Who Could Fly? It a touching fantasy film that didn't do well in theaters, but is one of my favorites lite heart warmers. A young Jay Underwood's best performance. He does mostly TV stuff now. And Frank Savage plays the cute little comic relief. It's nothing as deep as Rider or Around The Bend, but I think you'd like it.
