My 10 year. old grandson thought it was a little boring, but I was glad he was there. Children need more subtle magic, real people, nostalgia and dreamy longing moods in the movies they watch. There are too many fireworks in their movie diets.
Don't wast your money on the 3-D. Our 7 family members went together and we all wished we hadn't indulged in the 3D. One of our group got dizzy with it and left for awhile.
This is a lovely movie. 3 1/2 *
