Bridge to Terabithia was one of my favorite books when I was growing up. In fact, it’s still one of my favorite books. It’s so gut-wrenchingly heartbreaking yet beautiful coming of age stories that you can’t stop thinking about it, even when you haven’t read it in the past 10 years. When I heard that they were making it into a movie, naturally, I had some doubts. For one, Jesse and Leslie’s young music teacher was someone who I always visualized as the ideal twenty-something artsy teacher who had something vaguely hippie-ish (hippish) about her. And of course, she was beautiful, but not necessarily in the drop-dead gorgeous “you should be a movie star” sort of way, but someone who you’d genuinely have a crush on, whether you’re a young boy or not. Someone who was actually appealing enough for a young boy to forgo his budding relationship with a spirited and imaginative and age-appropriate Leslie. I couldn’t think of many Hollywood actresses who could fit the bill. I think Zooey did a terrific job, how about you?
