On a recent visit to the home country to see my daughter, her friends and she( 20 somethings) persuaded me to go with them to a Disney movie.
I must confess I am so out of touch with things, that I have never watched a Disney movie. I went along with them because I like to think they wanted me to go with them but I was planning to sleep through the movie in the theatre and catch up on some forty winks.
The sound effects kept me awake at first and then the 3 D motion of the images put a scare in me. I could not sleep for the life of me.
Sleep being deprived, I had to watch and I do not regret it.
I loved it.
Muana is a young girl who lives on a Pacific island. The story talks of old world values, family, simple pleasures of life, little materialistic desires and a world which is near idyllic. The story is punctuated with beautiful songs and dances. Then Muana has an adventure and what an adventure it was. It took her far from her familiar life to a world unknown, in search of unknown treasures and restoration of her island’s pristine heritage. I would say, this was a must-watch movie.
Thanks to my daughter and her friends who took me into their world for a little while.
