After scouring the area around our property all I found was a few burnt out logs and a dead crow with it's head ripped off, which from a distance I thought was my cat, because she is also black.
We have a high contingency of foxes and owls out here so I am a really worried about her. At sixteen years of age, and generally a pampered, sleep all day, indoors kind of a cat, she is not cut out for the wilds of the Enfield nights and I have my concerns.
I knew that something was amiss when she wasn't cuddled up next to me this morning like she usually is, and Craig said that she jumped over his feet and ran off into the night around 11.30pm last night, refusing to come back when she was called. Call of the wild? Had a gut full of all of our shit? Gone away to croak? God forbid. I love my cat and have grown extremely attached to her over the years, I am praying that she returns tonight because the longer that she is away, the more that I am getting worried.

This is a deep depiction for children's cinema. It has a depth and tone that could easily be lost on many of the young viewers that watch it, but most kids will get a buzz from the huge monster characters and carry on, even if they miss the subtle undertones.
This film has it's own heartbeat, it's wild and it's beautiful in its exploration of the main character Max as he learns to understand just what the wild rumpus within him is all about. Based on the picture story book of the same name by Maurice Sendak, this movie works hard to demonstrate the enormous energy and unbridled power that lies within the heart of a small boy.
It's a complex piece but a must see for all parents with a little slice of testosterone in their homes.
FINAL SAY: Young and wild and free.
