Seondhand Lions (2003)
A drama directed by Tim McCanlies.
A boy goes to live with his uncles. The uncles had previously had wild adventures in Africa and brought home piles of gold.
This is the opposite of "new Hollywood bullshit". Interestingly, magic wands are made of wood from the holly tree, hence the name of the place that produces things to put a spell on us. Anyway, the characters are good and the flashback plot is epic. This is one of the films that defines a solid, green rating. That's why I'm rating it good.
