TREASURES UNDER THE ROCKS is in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival - it may not be a regular, endorsed title
This film is an original fairy tale with a unique storyline that includes magic, friendship, wisdom and kindness. It also offers young children an opportunity to learn some facts. This short film is about two boys, who are best friends, and each one finds objects leading them to see the Queen. One boy, Jake, finds a book or journal and the other, Cody finds a key. They decide to go in an adventure to meet with the Queen who hides treasures under the rocks. I loved the two young boys. They are very realistic and charming. Their acting isn't the most professional, but that is part of their charm. The scenes are beautiful; the camera shots are very good; and the sound is very clear. All the characters they meet along the way are dressed like characters from a fairy tale. The scenery is quite lovely and green. The houses are like cabins or country houses. The music is appealing and the special effects are very good. The yellow orbs are very magical and the locket turns into a FaceTime-like device. The adult actors are very good. This film has a few wisdom facts that are fun to learn such as - the apple is a symbol of wisdom and that is why teachers are symbolized with an apple. I didn't know that and learned it watching this film. My favorite part is when the one boy meets the Queen and she tells them that he already has the treasures. This film delivers the message that sometimes we already have inside us what we are looking for in others and we don't know it. It does show kids doing risky things such as when the boys leave the house without the adults knowing as they take off, by themselves, to find the Queen. I give this film 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 18, plus adults. It would be very suitable for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival. Reviewed by Ethan P. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST!
