A wonderfully written review, too (does this mean I can't look at Uma anymore?).

great post, lance.

instead of fairy tales for kids, i plan to read this year some fair tales for adults -- that is, kim by rudyard kipling and the sherlock holmes works, which i never read as a kid.

Tried to post a comment there but the page refused to load. I haven't seen the movie but I'd conjecture that a reason they may have spent so much time in real-life WWII was to set the audience up to be squarely in that era along with the kids. Society has seen a lot of changes in 60 years, so it's important if you're telling a story set in the late '30s/early '40s to remind a modern audience of that fairly bluntly.
