The Last Mimzy
Love this movie! A little reminiscent of E.T., “The Last Mimzy” follows a brother and sister who find a mysterious package washed up on the shore of the family beach house. When they begin playing with the “toys” they find in there, including a stuffed rabbit named Mimzy, they develop extraordinary intellect and sensitivity. Of course, the adults in their lives don’t know what to make of all this, they’re confused and scared. But the kids are intrigued, and clever enough to figure out their role in the grand scheme of things. They end up saving the world! Sweet, smart, well done all around. A wonderful movie for everyone in the family. It’s marketed mostly as a family film, but when my husband and I went to an evening show there were no kids in the audience, just adults out on date night. Highly recommended!
