Nostalgic and very insightful
4 June 2017 | by patxc400See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this documentary during the Cinetopia film festival. The film shows an in-depth description of how the Highlights magazine is created and goes through how it has adapted to fit the times. I remember reading the magazine in my dentist office as well as getting a subscription later on and I can say it was very nostalgic. This film shows how something as simple as a children's magazine is crafted very meticulously and for the benefit of its readers. Anyone who enjoyed it during their childhood owes it to themselves to see the hard work and dedication put in to the final product.
