Bridge to Terabithia

Just close your eyes and keep your mind wide open.

                                ---- Leslie Burke, Bridge to Terabithia

Thanks to the very deceiving trailers, I thought Bridge to Terabithia was just another average fantasy movie at the time and skipped it. It couldn't have been further from the truth.

I was totally unprepared for the sad ending when I finally watched it yesterday. In every possible way, I liked Leslie and her mildly crazy personality (even for a fifth grader). And that's why the final tragedy was a bit shocking and, kind of depressing.

But then, I guess that's what a truly moving film should make people feel...
