Directed and written by Ray Giarratana, “The Tiger Rising” is an American film based on the book written by Kate DiCamillo, having the same name as the movie. Produced by Deborah Giarrantana and Ryan Smith, the book depicts the story of a young boy who encounters a tiger in a trap in the woods near his home. The movie was released in theatres on January 21, 2022, i.e., Friday.
However, the movie didn’t perform as well as expected, maybe because the movie can amuse children only. Based on the national award-winning book “The Tiger Rising,” the movie has a lot to entertain the children.
Should You Stream or Skip? : “The Tiger Rising”
The director and writer have tried their best to incorporate quirkiness and childish yearning into the movie “The Tiger Rising” with the help of animated drawings and evocative nightmares of tigers, raging amok to make the film more interesting for children.
The imaginative segments inject a burst of vitality into the film. However, imagination is fleeting, as the film appears to squeeze every last drop of emotion from its sequences of lonely utopians. The metaphors used in the movie are so evident, like angels are the children who defeat devils, Black women possess supernatural insight, and tigers represent spiritual liberty, that the movie got caught in its trap of stereotypes and clichés.
Although it couldn’t perform as expected by the creators or the book readers, it manages to catch the attention of some fantasy lovers.
