The Indian in the Cupboard

4 years, 8 months ago at Jul 5 16:29
The foundation for the story is the childhood belief that your toys could become real, or even were real when you weren’t looking. This idea appeared in two divergent films in 1995: The Indian in the Cupboard and Toy Story.

On his ninth birthday a boy receives many presents. Two of them first seem to be less important: an old cupboard from his brother and a little Indian figure made of plastic from his best friend. But these two presents turn out to be much more magic than the rest.

" First Viewing Viewing Date: February 5th Via: Apple TV Plot: Omri, a young boy growing up in Brooklyn, receives an odd variety of presents for his birthday: a wooden cupboard from his older brother, a set of antique keys from his mother, and a plastic Indian from his best friend, Patrick. Rating: 6.8/10 Why Did I Watch It? It was a cheap buy on Apple and I've been curious about this one since seeing the VHS on the video store shelf as a kid."
