    Default Sophisticated Kids Films?

    There are quite a few books that I think fit the bill, but I can't think of films. Any ideas?

    or
    Movies about characters who are sophisticated kids?
    or
    Movies that star sophisticated kids as actors/characters?

    my first thought is: animation. There are many animated movies that I could put in that category, for instance:

    However, what do you mean by an audience of sophisticated kids? Can they bear with blood and death in a cartoon film? Can you make sure they won't feel bad? Then watch this classic with them.

    One of the first movies I ever watched in the theatre and I still love watching it recently is the Black Stallion. Great sound editing, cinematography, etc.

    I thought one of the most "clever" kid's movies was "The Incredibles." Another clever one was "Despicable Me."

    - Nightmare before Christmas.
    - Coraline (Could be a bit creepy depending on age)
    - Jungle Book

    Agreed on The Incredibles and The Jungle Book for sure

    Pixar in general has a lot that fit the criteria (Wall*E, Inside Out, Finding Nemo, Toy Story 1-3, etc.). Zootopia and Frozen also work on different levels.

    I keep showing Chaplin and Buster Keaton films to my kids, they love that stuff. Also can't go wrong with My Neighbor Totoro.
