The long weekend is almost here and while it’s a great time to spend time with the family, it’s also really easy to run out of things to do. A movie marathon is the perfect way to unwind while also spending time together, so we’ve lined up a few family-friendly films to enjoy on Showmax.
1. The Lorax
The Lorax is an animated adaptation of the Dr Seuss book, bringing the author’s vision to the screen in a colourful and captivating world. The movie follows Ted, a 12-year-old boy who lives in a city that’s completely devoid of living plants or animals. In this synthetic world, Ted hopes to win the heart of a girl by helping her fulfil her greatest wish – to see a real tree. The search proves more daunting than expected in a barren world, where there is no tree in site. Ted discovers a lone stranger who tells him the story of how nature once was and what happened to it all, which motivates Ted to make a change.
This movie has enjoyable elements for the whole family, and the environmental message resonates more with audiences every day.
