Here. Helianthus. Giant sunflower. Start off with them, they are incredibly beautiful. They need a lot of light and heat. They follow the arc of the sun from dawn until dusk, extracting maximum energy from every day. It's a very... a very clever plant. Think about that.

It's a grownup fairy tale with hints of magic: hearts opening, friendships blossoming and creativity abounding. The story is centered around a garden...after all, in real life the work of a gardener is a form of magic. The characters are endearing and the cast is perfection: from the cantankerous cynical neighbor to the witchy librarian to the magical inventor to the girl who makes art because she must.
As I exited the movie I told my husband it will be one we must share with our adult daughter, my aged mother and our millennial son. Something there for all of us.
