What Family Movies Should Be

'The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet' is the best family movie I've seen in a long time. Based off of a novel, this story is a slight children's fantasy that holds one firm foot in the emotional reality of it's situations. The title character is a boy genius, but he is far from being presented as such the typical caricature. He acts as a perfectly normal kid outside of his intellectual passions. The simple plot of him running from home to accept a science award turns out to only be the framework and not the focus. His adventure isn't fantastical in the least. It's completely believable and his actions through it all are even more so. Despite being able to competently travel almost halfway cross-country solo, he still becomes scared and sad. And that's not just from the long trek....
