First Cow

First Cow ★★★★

Foraging around for that one thing that will fix you up for good - in this land of plenty, surely there has to be something. Even if this one thing is not your own, you can make it so. And one day you find it, you strike gold, and it's the best thing you've ever tasted.

So a new world is opened up. You can see beyond the river and the forest, and you can share it. Everyone wants a piece. It reminds them of their mother, of their home, of endless possibility. In your hands you hold the key to something special, something that you might just be able to call your own.

But everything has a cost. Some things may be worth more than others - it may be different from one day to the next - but at the end of the day, everything on this earth comes at a price. Except, maybe, something like friendship.


(I'm sorry I didn't have the will to wait for this one to hit theatres here, but I promise I will be positively sprinting to get in line when it does. Let's call this viewing the "first wow".)
