Spike Jonze directs a magical, visually astonishing film version of Maurice Sendak’s celebrated children’s classic. After a fight with his sister and feeling his neglected by his mom, nine year old Max, dressed as a wolf, runs away from home into a world of his own imagination… he sails across the sea to become king of the land Where the Wild Things Are. As King Max he runs a wondrous realm of gigantic fuzzy monsters – but being king may not be as carefree as it looks! Interesting children’s book to film fact: Jonze came to make Where the Wild Things Are after meeting Maurice Sendak while trying to realize another classic kids book, Harold and the Purple Crayon, into a film. Let the rumpus begin!
