    It reminds me of little Monsters. It is very heartfelt. It gives the adventure and the feels u need. Take a trip to when you were a kid. Dreaming is still a wonderful thing. The dream world they created is so imaginative and inspiring. It will definitely remind you some of your childhood memories and favorite movies. Jason momoa does a great job and the cast great as well. Its a great telling but you don't really feel it when you're watching it. There should be more movies that remind of your childhood. I would also that it could similar movies but go a different direction when making it but would be good.

    Incredibly touching, heartfelt story about grief and renewed life
    I knew nothing about this story or plotline before watching, and that's the way I recommend you experience it. Don't read any reviews or spoilers, especially those low-scoring reviews from esoteric and analytical "critics". You don't need to understand a director's entire body of work, or a screenwriter's headspace to enjoy a good story. That's just pseudo-intellectual hubris from film snobs.

    Slumberland is a tale of overcoming grief, childhood trauma, embracing new adventures, and connecting authentically to those around us. The film takes you on a wild, adventurous joyride through a fantastic landscape of dreams, where anything is possible and the subconscious is free to explore. Nemo is lost, alone & searching after the traffic loss of her father, her entire world. Thrust into a wholly new environment, she must find the courage and bravery to rediscover who she is in this new reality without her dad, and faces a pivotal reconning... Will she embrace her new life and the new "adventures" it holds, or will she spiral into self-pity and isolation? Will she reject her equally damaged uncle, or see him for the flawed, yet loving person he has the potential to be?

    In the end, Slumberland is a masterpiece at addressing grief, loss, loneliness, fear, uncertainty and doubt. It is a heartfelt reminder that the lives we live are complex, beautiful canvases, and that a life worth living is worth living with others.

    I fully recommend this movie to anyone with a vivid imagination and a yearning for adventure. It will not disappoint.
