Bridge to Terabithia (2007)

Bridge to Terabithia is a fantasy/drama film based on a novel of the same name. It tells the story of Jess Aarons (Josh Hutcherson), a fifth grader and an aspiring artist. His family isn't very well off and he has trouble with bullies in school. A new girl named Leslie Burke (AnnaSophia Robb) beat him at a race, which he practiced all summer for. On the way home, Jess and Leslie learned that they are neighbors. Their friendship grew, as they created a magical place across the creek - Terabithia. 

I remember watching the trailer for Bridge to Terabithia sometime back, and I was really excited to see it thinking it was an epic family fantasy adventure. I don't think I've watched any other trailer that was more misleading. Even the movie poster looks magical. Well, it is magical in a way. The bond between Jess and Leslie was just beautiful. I was surprised at the lengths of emotion I felt while watching the film. Be forewarned, you'll need boxes of tissue.
