The NeverEnding Story
When young Bastian borrows a mysterious, ornately-bound book, he never dreams that turning a page will draw him into a shimmering fantasy world of racing snails, hang-glider bats, soaring luck dragons, puckish elves, a Childlike Empress, the brave warrior Atreyu and a slab-faced walking quarry called a Rock Biter.
“Without imagination and dreams there is nothing.” This is the premise of this fantasy-filled movie. Bastian is going through some things in his life and his father truly does not understand him. He has problems at school with some other boys, and one day when trying to escape their bullying finds himself in a book shop. There he “borrows” a book that takes him on an adventure he could never have imagined.This movie highlights that without dreams and fantasy, the world would have nothing and it would be the end of humankind as we know it. It also shows the importance of how reading influences the world of hopes and imagination. As Bastian represents the young of our world who will build our future, it truly is a never-ending story. The Dove Family Approved Seal is awarded to this movie.
