My family and other Animals; Movie Review

Have you seen this movie? It's put out by the BBC Drama and it's about the life of home-educated British naturalist Gerald Durrell. My family watched it twice over the weekend. It's a heartwarming, funny narration of an eccentric family, who trade the damp weather of pre-WWII England for time on sun-shiny Corfu.

It's the perfect place for a budding scientist and Jerry thrives in this climate of abundance; bugs and much freedom to romp in the beautiful natural world. His older siblings, although often exasperated by one another's tendencies and personalities, allow one another to be who they are-and their mother is a brilliant example of good unschooling practise- "if you can control your children you're doing something wrong."

Hear hear!
