About the Movie

From the director of The Lion King comes a new animated classic, based on one of the most beloved and bestselling books of all time, and brought to life by some of the most acclaimed animators from around the world. In a Mediterranean seaside village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter Almitra (Quvenzhané Wallis) out of trouble. The three embark on a journey meant to end with Mustafa’s return home – but first they must evade the authorities who fear that the truth in his words will spark rebellion. Take a journey that critics call “gloriously uplifting and life-affirming” (IndieWire), “profound” (Variety), and “a celebration of life, freedom, and the human spirit” (The National).

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This collection of eight mini-sermons falls flat. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Aug 6, 2015

Fresh: Gibran's little life lessons have been turned into three-minute haiku by different animators and spread across the film. Each one soars, even if the plot holding them together is frustratingly Disneyish. – Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly, Aug 6, 2015

Fresh: A work of essential spiritual enlightenment, elegantly interpreted by nine of the world's leading independent animators, all tied up and wrapped in a family-friendly bow by "The Lion King" director Roger Allers. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Mar 22, 2015

Fresh: Readers who regard Gibran as source of profound wisdom will delight in this celebration of his work; skeptics who dismiss his poetry as portentous and overblown should wait for the disc to come out and enjoy the imagery with the sound on low. – Charles Solomon, Los Angeles Times, Aug 6, 2015

I've shown this movie to all my friends. It remains one of the greatest I've ever seen. Beautifully done, stunning. Very simple yet eloquent.

Beautiful and inspirational

This is a beautiful story and a wonderful adaption. I would highly recommend this movie.


As a grateful fan of Gibran, I am proud of Hayek.
