Lovely movie about paying attention and listening deeply to the natural world, as told through the true interactions of a man and a sea creature. It unfolds slowly, though, and my youngest son (age 9) probably would have prefered a frantic Pixar production. But my 11-year old and I were captivated.
This movie has helped me re-frame conversations about the natural world with my children. For example, one of my kids noted the dodo bird went extinct because they were “too stupid” and were easily killed by humans. I was able to shift that perspective by asking questions about the human understanding of the birds, and how the birds had lived for thousands of years before humans entered the scene.
