For good behavior, my fifth grade class was awarded with a monthly movie. Somewhere in there, Watership Down made the cut. It’s a weird, whacked-out animated film that crawled into my nightmares for several weeks after. As a…ahem..children’s movie, this sum’bitch tackles some heavy subjects: Death, forced labor, extinction, deforestation, etc. Bunnies are ripping each other’s throats out, people! My wife and I have a son on the way, and he will NOT be watching this movie. At least ’till he’s thirty, anyway.
So, yeah, the boys and I booze it up and watch Watership Down. Discussion follows. And probably therapy after that. We drink a little bubbly, rose, and Scotch for my upcoming ebook, which will pair wine (and a little whiskey) with movies.
