Help your children enjoy their well earned and first break of the 2016/17 academic year with a fun trip to the cinema. There are some great cinematic gems playing this October half term which will be sure to entertain both you and them, and provide a much needed escape from all that studying. Here are three films you don’t want to miss:
You don’t have to be a bird lover to enjoy this hilarious and heartwarming film. Storks introduces you to a gorgeous and colourful animated world of workaholic parents, acrobatic wolves, hardworking storks and one very weird pigeon. The hard working storks, along with a few other different birds, used to deliver babies, but now deliver packages for the giant corporation, Cornerstone. That’s all about to change when Junior, the stork with the most deliveries and hopefully next in line to the current CEO, embarks on a fun and crazy adventure with orphan Tulip after the accidental and unauthorised creation of a baby at the company’s old baby factory. Filled high with fast-paced jokes and some very sweet scenes that are sure to tug at your heartstrings, Storks is truly a feel good film.
