A 2009 fantasy film adapted from Maurice Sendak’s 1963 children’s book of the same name. The film centers on a lonely nine-year-old boy named Max who sails away to an island inhabited by creatures known as the "Wild Things," who declare Max their king. Directed by Spike Jonze, it combines live-action, animatronics, and computer-generated imagery (CGI) as well as performers in costumes provided by the Jim Henson Company. The film stars Max Records, Forest Whitaker, and Catherine O'Hara.
Trivia: In an interview with Newsweek, Maurice Sendak stated that parents who deemed the film's content to be too disturbing for children should "Go to hell. That's a question I will not tolerate." He further noted, "If they can’t handle it, they should go home… “I saw the most horrendous movies that were unfit for child's eyes. So what? I managed to survive."
