This new Disney film is directed by Independent Spirit Award winner Miguel Arteta ( The Good Girl, Cedar Rapids, Youth in Revolt) from a screenplay by Rob Lieber. The year 1972 falls into play here, as well. I remember that year well, as I started Kindergarten that year. This film is bases on the book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, which was first published in 1972! This book was written by Judith Viorst and inspired by her sons Alexander, Anthony and Nicholas. With more than 2 million copies in print, it became an ALA Notable Children's Book and won a George G. Stone Center Recognition of Merit, a Georgia Children's Book Award and was also a popular Reading Rainbow Book. As a Mom of two boys, I "get" this story!
It's always fun to see the "old" classics that I grew up with come around into something that fits today's world! Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is sure to be a hit! Plan now to see it when it arrives in a theater near you.
