Lessons of Darkness

Its seemingly effortless synthesis of humor and pathos [is] almost as wonderful as is its ability to capture the sense of awe and fear that attends youth's initial exposure to the big wide world.

This enchanting, cleverly made fable, brings freshness and charm to the premise of talking animals. A sleeper, the picture was nominated for 7 Oscars, including Best Picture, winning one for Visual Effects.

One of those rare family films that refuses to talk -- or rather write -- down to the viewer.

It's a great story -- tender without being sentimental, great for kids, engaging for adults, and with a four-legged protagonist who's as good and decent a hero as you could ask for in Hollywood.

Unlike subsequent talking-animal pictures, Babe is a movie in which the human leads matter as much as the animals, or more so.
