SCHELLEN-URSLI (THE LITTLE MOUNTAIN BOY)
(Xavier Koller, Switzerland, live action, 2015, 100 min)
Ages 7+. In Swiss-German with English subtitles.
Journey to the snowy Alps with this new film based on the most famous Swiss childrens book after Heidi. Meet a brave and determined boy who dares the impossible to climb to his parents summer chalet, high in the mountains, in the deep winter snow to retrieve one of his familys most prized possessions. But before he sets out, he must first help his family survive financial ruin, rescue his beloved pet goat, and with his best friend, outwit a bratty bully who seems out to get him at every turn. Will he make it back to the village in time to celebrate the end-of-winter holiday of Chalandamarz?

Notes to parents: There are scenes of danger, a bothersome bully, and one bumbling adult villain. The main character runs away, and his best friend, a girl, gives sleeping medicine to her parents and a dog without their knowledge. There is one instance of very mild coarse language.
