Best Animals of 2019

By Mary Simon

These creatures captured our attention because of their life experience, nobility, bravery, wisdom, and charm. I'm not talking cute kitty picture personality (although they have a place in our annals as well), rather, bold, robust dispositions and soulful depth.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    2019

    Enzo forever. The story of family hardship and love, as told by the dog. You will laugh and cry (often at the same time), but you will never forget Enzo and his life story. The book is great and the movie tries to capture the essence of the book. Read the book first.

  • Dumbo

    2019

    This family fantasy film, directed by none other than Tim Burton, retells the original story Walt Disney brought us many years ago. Few of us now can appreciate circus life and the cruelty inflicted on animals, but the story of the flying elephant can still charm in its own way. Suspend your judgment of circuses to see Dumbo.
