Today is the rerelease of The Madeline Movie: Lost In Paris!
Starring Jason Alexander, Lauren Bacall, Christopher Plummer and Andrea Libman
She's captured millions of hearts and been adored by every generation -- now Madeline stars in her first animated feature! Inspired by the beloved classic books that introduced us to a dozen delightful girls who live in an old house in Paris covered with vines, The Madeline Movie: Lost In Paris is full of spirited fun and five "fantastique" new songs.
When a long-lost uncle from Vienna pays a surprise visit, Madeline's dreams of family life seem wonderfully fulfilled -- until she finds herself in the middle of an unfortunate scheme. Madeline then must call upon all of her courage and cleverness to foil an evil plot to take her from the only family she's ever known. Join Madeline, Miss Clavel, Pepito, 11 school friends, and her ever-so-smart dog, Genevieve, in a thrilling Paris adventure you won't want to miss, where everyone learns the true meaning of family!
Screen legends Christopher Plummer (The Sound Of Music) and Lauren Bacall (The Big Sleep) costar in the animated feature the New York Daily News calls “delightful!”
Here is a preview clip of the DVD and a coloring page for you to enjoy! Click here, to download. Do you remember reading about the adventures of Madeline, in her timeless classic storybooks? I sure do! I've even started with my own daughter, so I was eager to see the story brought to life. What a surprise to find out this DVD is actually a rerelease of a movie I'd seen previously! I enjoyed the tales of Madeline just as much the second time around.
Top notch voice actors really help make the story intriguing. Both Plummer and Bacall had a big presence at this year’s Academy Awards® – Bacall was given an honorary Oscar for her work and Plummer was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Leo Tolstoy in The Last Station. I also liked how it's a faithful representation of the book and it's illustrations.
I would recommend this title for children five years of age and up as some parts can be a bit scary for very young ones. Your child might be fine with it, but mine started hiding behind her fingers when the Uncle first takes Madeline to his basement home in "Vienna". She made it through the movie, but just barely. But I know that in a little bit she'll love it, as she already likes the books. Being able to connect with favorite characters through other mediums has always been something she likes to do.Giveaway!
