An enjoyable fantasy that doesn’t insult adult intelligence.
12-year-old Josh Hutcherson is a shy schoolboy from a financially struggling farming family. He learns that Leslie (AnnaSophia Robb), the new girl at his school, is now his next-door neighbour. She enjoys writing, as both her parents are authors. Josh, unbeknown to his parents, has ambitions to become an artist…so both of them, therefore, become automatic targets for the school bullies. They form an alliance when they discover that they’re the fastest runners in the school!
Crossing a small river by means of a rope swing: together, on the other side, they come across a derelict tree house. It is there that they create a fantasy world that Leslie names “Terabithia,” that becomes their refuge when the “real world” gets too much for them. Jess finds that he has a further ally in Miss Edmunds (Zooey Deschanel), the school’s controversial music teacher, who stumbles across some of his drawings.
Third-billed Robert Patrick – as Jess’s father – has developed into a fine character actor, and proves yet again that there is life after Terminator 2.
Fantasy/adventure tale about two children who invent a secret
world. Bullied at school, and with worries at home, young Jesse

his dream is shattered when new girl in school, Leslie Burke (Anna
Sophia Robb), beats him to the tape. Despite this initial setback,
the pair soon realise they have a lot in common, and a friendship
develops. Discovering that they both share creative talents, (Jesse
loves to draw, while Leslie is a keen storyteller), they invent the
magical kingdom of Terabithia, a fantasy world reached by swinging
on a rope over a stream near their homes. Once inside Terabithia,
they become the rulers of all they see, embarking on magical
adventures, fighting evil, and learning how to triumph over
