Giveaway: The Book of Life Bluray

THE BOOK OF LIFE is a breathtaking animated comedy with a dazzling visual style unlike anything you’ve seen before. Torn between the expectations of his family and the desires of his heart, a young man named Manolo sets off on an epic quest that spans three spectacular worlds in order to reunite with his one true love and defend his village. Not your ordinary fairy tale, THE BOOK OF LIFE is a wondrous fantasy-adventure filled with magic, music and fun! 


Rated PG
95 minutes


So much fun!
What an awesome soundtrack too! I found myself singing along right from the beginning.
I really liked how this film gently explains to young minds about death and dying. The explanation given was fantastic. Usually kids wouldn't understand, but this film had a clever way of reasoning and reassuring the child. I loved how it all went down.
Parents will enjoy this movie but it really is for the kids, aged 6-12.
