Valiant

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Whimsically entertaining, if a bit featherweight, computer-animated adventure set in World War II-era England about a tiny but stalwart carrier pigeon (voiced by Ewan McGregor) who is given the dangerous mission of delivering a vital communique from occupied France safely to England while being hunted by a squadron of ruthless German falcons. Despite a script that is a little light in the plumage, the visually vibrant film imparts a positive self-esteem message that "it's not the size of your wingspan, but the size of your spirit." Some scary images that may frighten the youngest viewers and a few innocuous flatulence jokes. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is G -- general audiences.

Florian: American Catholic Blog The French novelist Leon Bloy once said that there is only one tragedy in life: not to be a saint. It may be that God permits some suffering as the only way to wake someone from a dream of self-sufficiency and illusory happiness.
