The Tiger Rising: Let’s fight for the freedom we all want!! Let’s talk about a movie that is really under the radar at the moment. The Tiger Rising is an upcoming movie based on a 2001 children’s book written by Kate DiCamillo. And it is an excellent book.
There is a very high chance that you have read this book. And if you have, you might be looking forward to this movie. It is just beautiful to see your childhood memory getting alive in front of your eyes.
The movie is based on a tiger, but more than that. It is also about how different people deal with grief and daily struggles differently. The Tiger Rising has every element to be a particular movie.
The Tiger Rising – Plot, Release Date, Cast and Review
The Tiger Rising: Plot
The movie revolves around a 12-year-old boy Rob Horton, a complete introvert. He lives in his imagination more than in real life. After losing his mother, he starts his new life in rural Florida at the Kentucky Star Motel.
But his new life is not that easy. His grief of losing his mother, anger from getting bullied every day at school. It is all pending up. Then suddenly, one day, he found something that he would never have imagined.
A full-grown Bengal tiger, hidden in the woods and held captive by the mean-spirited motel owner, Beauchamp. Rob decides to let go of the Tiger with the help of a very wise maid Willie May and his new friend Sistine.
But letting go of Tiger is not freeing him simply. For Rob, it is a journey of recovering from his emotional grief and once again finding happiness in his life. It will be an emotional ride for sure.
