An animated classic that's so much more than a single plot point. This is, perhaps, the most definitive coming-of-age story ever committed to film, centered on a mother-son relationship that's honest, natural, and beautifully understated. AND CAN WE PLEASE ALL SPEND MORE TIME TALKING ABOUT FRANK CHURCHILL & EDWARD PLUMB'S SOARING, SUMPTUOUS SCORE!!
N.B. With the possible exception of THE LITTLE MERMAID, I think this may be the only Disney film that, in the right hands, could benefit from a live-action (read: photo-real CGI) remake.
