What happens when kids get bored? on snow days? winter break? I remember growing up making up world's, playing pretend, and having the time of my life when my imagination would go wild. When my friends and I got together, oh world watch out. We were always up to no good. In the end, there were always lessons to be learned.
There is a new animated movie that captures kids being kids.
SNOWTIME! is a romp through childhood full of heart and humor. To amuse themselves during the winter school break, the kids in a small village decide to have a massive snowball fight. Luke and Sophie, both 11 years old, become the leaders of the opposing sides. Sophie and her cohorts defend an elaborate snow fort against the assault of Luke’s horde. Whichever side occupies the fort at the end of the winter break, wins. But what starts out as pure youthful fun and enthusiasm deteriorates into a more serious conflict, where children learn valuable life lessons on friendship, the importance of unity, and the emotional consequences of vicious rivalry. The film’s underlying message – neither side wins in war – is as relevant today as ever.
It comes out today in select theaters. For more information go to the official website: www.snowtimemovie.com
