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.

American Catholic Blog To avoid running aground on the rocks, our spiritual life cannot be
reduced to a few religious moments. In the succession of days and 
seasons, in the unfolding of times and events, we learn to see ourselves by looking to the One who does not pass away: spirituality is a return to the essential, to that good that no one can take from us, the one truly necessary thing.
