Video Beaverhausen: Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet

How do you make a film about The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran's book of pithy platitudes? Basically, you don't.

This book, first published in 1923, regained popularity during the 1960s and early '70s. I was introduced to it during my early college years.

In 2014, it was released as an animated film with voices supplied by Liam Neeson, Salma Hayek, Frank Langella, John Krasinski and Alfred Molina among others.

It tells an intriguing story about Gibran's exile and move from Syria ~ where his work was considered "dangerous" ~ to New York City.

This is a good film for enlightened families to watch together. I totally endorse catching this on video or download.
