By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic

Watching director Jon Favreau's spectacularly buoyant homage to the circle of life, I bemoaned not having had a little niece or nephew on loan to give me the moppet point of view. As Art Linkletter noted, kids say the darnedest things, and a quote from Taylor or Max would have at least facilitated an opening paragraph.

It was a Ponce de León of the mind. Blown away by the seamlessly elegant, completely infatuating majesty of the special effects, the eight-year-old in me was, for 118 engaged

Over 50 multinational companies have announced
