I fondly remember watching the old black and white Lassie shows when I was real young. The story of a brave dog who protects with undying love. However, my own three boys have no interest in the show. Nope, no Lassie stories, until now.
I screened a copy of the new movie Lassie which stars Jonathan Mason, Peter O’Toole, Samantha Morton, and John Lynch. The film was directed by Charles Sturridge and shot within the beautiful countryside of Ireland.
I wasn’t too sure about the film when I first started watching it. I still have pictures of the old shows within my head. However, I kept an open mind as I settled down to watch the film with my seven year old son.
Happily we both enjoyed this heartwarming tale! My son was wrapped up in the movie. Lassie will gain a new generation of young fans with this latest film.
The story dealt with many issues including how people can’t control everything in their lives. It starts off with a family who are barely making it financially. They sell Lassie since they can’t pay for her food any longer. The new owner who bought her to breed moves her far away. She escapes and travels an adventurous journey all the way home again to the little boy she loves.
