PETE’S DRAGON (PG) Living under the protection of friendly fire US, 103 min
Gently meandering family adventure fare that only just gets by. Oakes Fegley is Pete, a boy who lost his parents in a car crash, and has been going feral in the forest. If you’re thinking Pete is a bit like Mowgli from The Jungle Book, you are kind of on the right track. Except this kid’s chief guardian and playmate is a jolly green dragon with the personality of a loyal pet dog.
