If you like Rise of the Planet of the Apes

The best film of the year is a moving family drama, a brilliant coming of age journey, and a deeply affecting and flawlessly executed piece of popular art.

Some more thoughts on an instant classic that has haunted me since I first saw it last Friday morning when it opened. Rise of the Apes is not just a well crafted, expertly paced, exciting blockbuster. It is a film about family, home, tragedy, separation, finding one's place in the world, and so much more.
