The Neverending Story

The Neverending Story

1984, PG, 92 min. Directed by Wolfgang Petersen. Starring Noah Hathaway, Barret Oliver, Tami Stronach, Moses Gunn.

REVIEWED Wed., Feb. 21, 2001

This marvelous, inventive, inspiring fantasy in which the books read by the story's hero actually come to life is directed by the man who later went on make Das Boot and The Perfect Storm. As might be expected, it's amazing to see on the big screen and is also the kind of imaginative tale that sends you out of the theatre craving to read.
