AL­PHA (PG)

WHAT YOU LIVE IS WHAT YOU PET, US, 96 MIN

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - MOVIES -

This is the story of Arc­tic wolf Al­pha, and how she bud­died-up with Keda (Aus­tralian star Kodi SmitMcPhee), the only son of the chief of a no­madic tribe. On his first hunt­ing ex­pe­di­tion, Keda takes a tum­ble over a ledge. Left for dead, Keda faces an im­pos­si­bly ar­du­ous jour­ney home un­til a chance en­counter with kindly and clever Al­pha. What fol­lows is a stark, yet stun­ningly mounted ad­ven­ture odyssey, wherein boy and wolf must meld minds to con­tin­u­ally elude ev­ery dan­ger na­ture sends their way. Younger view­ers (boys, in par­tic­u­lar) will plug into this on a com­ing-of-IceAge level. Older on­look­ers won’t mind it ei­ther as a shorter, sweeter ver­sion of The Revenant.
