Seems like every night is family night! Tired of giving in to tech toys? Running out of ideas? We did a quick poll of the ANTIDOTE team and this is what we found. (Just realized that given that ANTIDOTE is green rated, cruelty-free, and open to all, our picks gravitate to those themes.) Let us know your picks, too!
In the motion picture category...
Pick of the Litter – a new favorite. This film follows a litter of puppies from the when they're born through their journey to become guide dogs for the visually impaired. Also gives a glimpse into how many different ways that people can be limited visually and how that changes the ways they interact with the world. Certified “Fresh” by Rotten Tomatoes at 97%!
Babe – a 90’s classic film about “anything is possible.” This Academy Award nominated movie does have a few tear-jerking moments.
The Sound of Music - best overall classic – not only delivers catchy tunes, it’s also a chance to talk about real history and why it is important to stand up people, especially minority groups.
Planet Earth – best nature series – episodes take episode takes you into the mountains, the plains, jungles, forests, caves and fields of ice. We love to talk about our responsibility to take care of the planet. A great addition is to then watch how nature documentaries are made here.
