We had not watched the film before so it was quite exciting to spend the first day of the half term with a party.
We had also been sent some goodies to help us enjoy the film even more –
The children were thrilled with the box we received – it did contain things to make noise so which child would not be? It also had some snacks for movie time.
We all enjoyed The Book of Life and the children were totally engrossed in it. Watching a film at home can distract them most of the time but this time I found that it had their undivided attention.
Torn between the expectations of his family and the desires of his heart, a young man named Manolo sets off on an epic quest, that spans three spectacular worlds in order to reunites with his one true love and defend his village. not your ordinary fairytale, The Book of Life is a wondrous fantasy-adventure filled with magic, music and fun.
The children were rooting for Manolo. I personally loved the culture that it projected while keeping to theme. The music was lovely and there was some dancing (the kids, not me).
We had a wonderful evening and if you haven’t seen the film, we highly recommend that you do.
The Book of Life is out on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and DVD now from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
