Here is the plot description for “The Hedgehog”:

Inspired by the best-selling book “The Elegance of the Hedgehog,” “The Hedgehog” is the story of Paloma (Garance Le Guillermic): a young girl chronicling the hypocrisy of the adult world with her video camera. When Paloma begins to learn about life from grumpy building concierge Renée Michel (Josiane Balasko), she begins to understand that there are allies to be found beneath the prickliest of exteriors.

The movie trailer for “The Hedgehog” can be watched now below.

Should kids just be kids or constantly strive to grow up?

MY OPINION A KID SHOULD BE A KID TILL A CERTAIN AGE BUT THEN YOU SHOULD START MATURING AND BECOMING A REAL PERSON IN SOCIETY BECAUSE ITS ROUGH OUT THERE IF YOU DONT LEARN TO BE A GROWN UP AND DO GROWN UP DECISIONS.

Time and place

Kids should be kids while they can. There is a time and place for everything. There is only a limited window where society deems it appropriate to behave like a kid so ot should completely be taken advantage of. You have the rest of your life to be an adult.

Gotta find that balance.

Gotta find that balance. Otherwise, they might grow up and fall off of their big wheels.

  • The King of Comedy

    Something always felt a bit out of place for me in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant “The King of Comedy”, just released on Blu-ray for the first time.

  • 47 Ronin with Keanu Reeves

    CHICAGO – If you’ve ever wondered what the difference is between a director and a producer, let “47 Ronin” explain how the hierarchy of creativity hinders the evolution of even the most straightforward-sounding pitches. “47 Ronin” is the type of samurai movie set in Japan that features native actors speaking only English, while Keanu Reeves stars as an outsider clearly plunked into the picture for stateside star power.
