A Dozen Recommendations Say...

The movie to see this Oscar season is Pan's Labyrinth. It's an animated story (but not for kids!) of a young girl who travels with her pregnant mother to live with her mother's new husband in a rural area up North in Spain, 1944, after Franco's victory. The girl lives in an imaginary world of her own creation and faces the real world with much chagrin. Fascist repression towards the end of World War II (1944) is at its height in rural Spain as the girl must come to terms with that through a fable of her own.
