The simply adorable movie Benji a new Netflix original movie captures hearts. I have seen the original Benji, which by the way is very good.  However, something about this version is so raw in a way that attaches you to the realness.

“Two school kids strike up a friendship with an orphaned puppy named Benji. When danger befalls them, and they end up kidnapped by robbers who are in over their heads, Benji and his scruffy sidekick come to the rescue,” said IMDb reviews. This is the best representation of the film. It’s pure, yet sends out a message of love and loyalty to the audience of Benji.

Generally, I gravitate towards realistic films. I like the way it makes me feel; I feel as if I have a connection with the actors. Although this is all in my head because, hello its a TV, realistic qualities capture me more. So I may be biased with the fact that I love raw, realistic films, but Benji is so natural that it’s simple to love.

The actors are phenomenal, Carter (Gabriel Bateman) is outstanding. He just fits the character so well it almost seems real– his acting, that is. I do think that Frankie (Darby Camp) could have been cast to fit the part better. She doesn’t connect with the character of Frankie as much as I would love to see.

With a budget of 6 million produced by Brandan Camp, the 1974 remake hits the list of movies to watch. Netflix originals do it again, winning me over with the simplicity and purity.
