The Wild Things desperately long for a leader to guide them, just as Max longs for a kingdom to rule. When Max is crowned king, he promises to create a place where everyone will be happy. Max soon finds, though, that ruling his kingdom is not so easy and his relationships there prove to be more complicated than he originally thought.
Where the Wild Things Are is directed by Spike Jonze and stars Catherine Keener, Max Records, Mark Ruffalo, Forest Whitaker, and Catherine O'Hara.
