Dummie the Mummy
JANUARY 31, SUNDAY AT 1:30PM
DUMMIE THE MUMMY North American premiere
(Pim van Hoeve, Netherlands, live action, 2014, 77 min)
Ages 7+. In Dutch with English subtitles.
Gus is a dreamy, slightly odd 11-year-old kid who leads an ordinary life with his dad in a quiet Dutch village until one day a museum mishap occurs and he finds a real live mummy in his bed! This pampered ancient Egyptian prince all wrapped up in bandages is the best, boldest, wackiest friend Gus ever had. Classroom hijinks and daring capers ensue in this offbeat, heartfelt story about the power of friendship, family, and magic scarabs.
Notes for parents: There are several scenes of bullying, including a physical altercation between the mummy and another student. The film also includes some mildly scary scenes, a moment of cultural insensitivity, and a humorously cavalier attitude to historical accuracy.
