A lost baby brontosaurus joins a mismatched group of fellow dino strays; together they face down T-Rexes and other dangers while learning the value of inter-species friendship. Yet this prehistoric BAMBI offers more than cheap nostalgia – it has a delicate visual beauty and a dark poignancy all its own, which you’re finally old enough to appreciate.
