Must See Movies Of The Week


I vividly remember my parents reading the Curious George books to me as a child. The fun loving monkey was a staple of my childhood. There is a story of how this character came about that you will finally get to know all about due to this film. So many children’s lives were impacted by the work of Hans and Margret Rey, the creators of Curious George, and their story is fascinating. This German-Jewish couple began their creation of the George character in France and after some stops along the way it became an American icon. The film elaborates on how George became a representation of their personal lives told through this adorable monkey character. This is a very interesting documentary about the birth of the character and the people behind it and all that they faced along their journey. This film brought back some pleasant memories from my childhood and I have no doubt it will bring back memories for many who watch this. Even if you weren’t exposed to Curious George in your youth, this is a must see film and story of a character you can introduce to your children.
