From Library Staff

The original non-animated talking animal film that's still much better than anything that followed it.

“Babe,” directed by Chris Noonan. This is usually marketed as a kids’ film now but was certainly enjoyed by many adults upon its release in 1995 … and it was nominated for seven Oscars, too. James Cromwell gives a terrific performance as a farmer named (what else?) Arthur Hoggett.

This delightful movie features a barnyard full of unforgettable characters. A piglet destined for eventual butchering arrives at the farmyard, is adopted by an old sheep dog, and discovers a special secret to success.

Wonderful film for all ages about a little piglet who steps in for one of his friends and saves the day. All the more remarkable as it was produced by the same guy who brought us Mad Max movies!

It's rare to see a family movie so well constructed and so well paced. This is a fable and fairy tale of the first order. This movie uplifts and emboldens the soul. Well worth watch, and notable film wise for the deft way in which George Miller makes a near silent finale scene absolutely charged with enthusiasm. Silence should not be so rousing or triumphant, and yet it is.

Classis older movie but I forgot about the sheep dying in the movie and my 6 year old started crying later in the day talking about death and sad about the movie. It got her thinking so a small child may not be ready for this movie.

Classic kids movie. You can't go wrong with talking animals.

Amusing, as it was intended. Plenty of slapstick, which entertained my three-year-old. She said that the first movie was better, though.
