About the film:

A classic story about childhood and the places we go to figure out the world we live in. Innovative director Spike Jonze collaborates with celebrated author Maurice Sendak to bring one of the most beloved books of all time to life.

“for anyone who’s ever climbed trees, grazed knees or basked in the comfort of a parent’s sympathy as they’ve pulled you off the ground… It’ll make your inner child run wild.”

—Dan Jolin for Empire Magazine
