In For Kids of All Ages, members of the National Society of Film Critics celebrate the wonder of childhood in cinema. In this volume, original essays commissioned especially for this collection stand alongside classic reviews from prominent film critics like Jay Carr and Roger Ebert. Each of the seven sections in this collection takes on a particular aspect of children's cinema, from animated features to adaptations of beloved novels. The films discussed here range from the early 1890s to the present. The contributors draw on personal connections that make their insights more trenchant and compelling. The essays and reviews in For Kids of All Ages are not just a list of recommendations-though plenty are included-but an illuminating, often personal study of children's movies, children in movies, and the childish wonder that is the essence of film.

Contrary to what Hollywood would have us believe, there is a whole world of movies (for all ages) outside the confines of animated blockbusters (for the whole family). This thoughtful, entertaining collection introduces parents and children to all kinds of movies, from all over the world, from Meet Me in St. Louis and Germany Year Zero to The Rider and Paddington 2. -- A. S. Hamrah, Film Critic, n+1, author of The Earth Dies Streaming: Film Writing, 2002-2018 As a film critic for French Review at the Cannes Film Festival between 1978 and 1981, I, like Peter Keough and all the other critics in this scintillating collection of essays, worshipped at the altar of cinema. Their earliest encounters on the silver screen paved the way for these writers to look at movies about children in a more critical manner as adults. Their connections with their youthful viewing triggers our own memories as we relive our own dreams and sometimes our nightmares conjured up on screen. From the first souvenirs of a Lumiere Brothers ground-breaking home movie to the literally uplifting narrative of an animated UP these film essays speak to the eternal child within us. -- John Michalczyk, film professor and historian, and documentary filmmaker
