While it may not be everyone's cup of tea, speaking for myself, having been an itinerate musician back in the 1960's/early '70's, I found "Austin to Boston" an excellent documentary with wonderful music and a modern take on the Traveling Minstrel .. I'd recommend it ..

The Little Prince. If you haven't read or don't love the book, I can't recommend it at all. Otherwise, I can only give a tepid recommendation. The problem is that since there isn't enough material for a feature film, they wrapped another story around it. The parts taken from the book were done with stop motion animation, and they are beautiful and what you imagine the book "brought to life" would be. Unfortunately, that is only like 20 minutes running time scattered through the first half of the movie. The rest is 3D animation and the framing story is pretty bad.

If they had just covered the whole book and made like a half hour movie with the same stop animation, I think it would have been beautiful. But as it is, this movie has extraneous stuff that fans of the book wouldn't like and non book readers would just find boring. If you are curious, I recommend fast forwarding through the movie and just watching the parts where the little prince appears.
