Shane

What makes Shane so intriguing is that a film originally for adults and generally ranked among the best ever, also works so well for children. In this case, fifty-year-old sensibilities and techniques yield a classical, forthright simplicity that puts the characters and values into high relief. Kids can grab hold of “Shane” because its larger than life. (Peter Nichols, The New York Times Essential Library of Childrens Movies)
