For starters “The Zookeeper’s Wife” is a novel by Diane Ackerman. The movie version is just as compelling. The story centers on a husband and wife who are zookeepers at the Warsaw Zoo in Poland. The film depicts the lead-up and the occurrence of the Holocaust. Jessica Chastain and Johan Heldenbergh play a married couple Antonina Zabinska and Jan Zabinski who sheltered and saved hundreds of Jews at their zoo.


The Boss Baby is a great concept for animation. I mean think about it? A baby that’s dressed in a fancy suit, runs a business with multiple diaper wearing little employees, not to mention having the intellect to outwit and outsmart others. I like that, and this is what Boss Baby is. The movie features the Boss Baby as its main centerpiece, however, the plot is seen from Tim’s perspective. Tim is the 7-year-old whose the older brother of Boss Baby. Tim is the one who is threatened by the arrival of the Boss. Their feud is what the premise is based on, but how does it play out?
