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