Unless your kids have been living under a rock they are, if they haven’t already, going to ask you to see Home or as Lily calls it, the Rihanna movie. Or as Kingston calls it, the Oh movie.
Home tells the story of Tip (Rihanna) and Oh (Jim Parsons), a loveable misfit from another planet. Oh comes to Earth on the run from his own people, and forms an unlikely friendship with Tip who is on a mission of her own. Through a series of funny adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is all part of being human. And while he changes her planet and she changes his world, they discover the true meaning of the word HOME.
HOME features an all-star voice cast including Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez.
I loved this movie, my kids loved this movie. The benchmark of all animation (for all time it seems) is Frozen as all other movies get compared to it. Both my kids say Home is better than Frozen so hopefully that gives you an idea of how good it is.
There were tears: theirs, mine and a hysterical child in the seat in front. There were laughs too, so many laughs. As a mother to brown skinned children it was so lovely to see a brown skinned heroine with natural hair, dressed like a child (looking at you awful Bratz dolls/movie) and there were great moral lessons/talking points on friendship, being different, fitting in and kindness.
In closing, go and see this movie. You will love it. If you have kids, take them too. 10/10.
HOME is in cinemas now.
