Whale Rider: A list in lieu of a review

Here are several personal reasons why I liked the movie Whale Rider:



Has lots of happy attractive fat people being physically active, with only one or two fat-negative comments.

Qualifies under the Bechdel Rule (albeit a bit scantily on the bit "about something other than men").

Has a hauntingly beautiful music soundtrack.

Has lots of underwater shots.

Has whales.

Made me cry without killing any people. (I needed to cry, and I don't cry all that often over movies.)

Includes a somewhat realistic portrayal of depression.

Has some feminist sensibility.

Has some cultural sensitivity.

Has some excellent acting.

I liked this movie a lot. I just watched it for the second time this weekend. The little girl is so talented. I was glad she was nominated for an Oscar. *hugs*
