    Babe, the pig that would become a sheep dog, is a sweet little film, but can also be a harrowing experience for animal lovers. That's something you have to face when you give animals a voice and yet keep them in the real world. So when puppies are sold to new owners, it echoes slavery. And when to-the-audience-sentient animals are put on the menu, it's murder. This gives the film a certain maturity and like other "heavy" children's classics like, say, Charlotte's Web, it's no puff piece that just washes over kids and parents harmlessly. The possibility of death (by wolf or by cook) raises the stakes for the amusing and ludicrous story of a pig who dreamed higher than his station, and while the lesson that "you can be anything if you set your heart to it" isn't in any way original, it is well taught in an offbeat, memorable manner, and resonates across several characters' stories, not just the star piglet's. 4 years 4 months ago
