Wild Things

The film remake of the beloved children's book Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, released a trailer last week. It's directed by Spike Jonze and includes an outstanding indie cast: Catherine Keener, Max Records, Mark Ruffalo, Lauren Ambrose, James Gandolfini. The movie looks awesome, and the costumes true to the original book's illustrations. I'm so happy that the "monsters" are not digitally created—their costume-like quality mimics the book's fierce drawings and our own tangibly-raw imaginations. I can't wait!
