Coastside Film Society presents the story of a boy and his cheetah Friday
Xan is 12 years old living in rural South Africa when his father brings home the orphaned cheetah cub who is destined to become his best friend. When his family is forced to move to the big city, Xan and Duma set off to find Duma a new home in the wild. Xan has courage but not a lot of common sense. So he starts by heading off into the Kalahari Desert, where to get lost is, usually, to die. From the director of the Black Stallion and Fly Away Home.
"This is an extraordinary film, a wonderful adventure. The movie takes on an additional depth because Xan is not a cute one-dimensional "family movie" child. ... These are characters free to hold surprises in the real world." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times Rated PG (for mild adventure peril).
