LAURA'S STAR

Large_film_12736547_photo1

In this heart-warming adaptation of Klaus Baumgart's storybooks, little Laura's family has just moved from a home in the country to one in the city. Laura loved the countryside, but in the city she has no friends and no trees to climb, which makes her sad, lonely, and even a little bratty. Then one night, as she watches the sky from her roof, a star falls to the ground. She rushes to find it and discovers that the star is injured. With loving care, she mends its broken point, thereby igniting a fantastic friendship. When it shines, the magical star brings everything to life, even Laura's stuffed animals. But when the star begins to fade, Laura realizes that she will have to let it go home in order for it to live. This magical animated tale is a perfect first movie for preschoolers and an unforgettable experience for the whole family.
