First-rate coming-of-age adventure set in Africa about a headstrong young boy (Alexander Michaletos) who embarks on a journey of self-discovery when he resolves to trek across hundreds of miles of treacherous terrain in order return his pet cheetah -- which he raised since it was an orphaned cub -- to its rightful home in the wild. Beautifully crafted by director Carroll Ballard, the boy-and-his-cheetah buddy movie combines exceptional nature photography -- including some amazing shots of African wildlife -- with a warm and winning story about the bonds of family and friendship, resulting in a film that is sweetly charming without being overly sentimental. Some scenes of peril, and brief wildlife violence which may be frightening to some young children. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
