When autumn comes, our family craves time spent cuddled up with warm drinks and some of our favourite movies. And not just any movies, you understand. There are “autumn movies” that we watch only in the autumn. One of them is The Fox and the Child.
It’s a wonderful fairy tale, told from a child’s perspective and it is so easy to imagine yourself as part of the story. We all were surprised not only that Georgie was so engaged in the movie, but that he was so deeply touched by it that he was inconsolable at the end of it. So inconsolable that I went in search of a small stuffed fox for him to love. And he does. They are constant companions. Perhaps he dreams of adventures on the farm with his fox.
