Here’s Meryl Streep’s ‘Notes for Living on Planet Earth’

Meryl Streep lends her voice to this environmentalist film, Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth, based on the book by notable children’s book author, Oliver Jeffers.

The movie is about an existential search for one’s greater purpose on earth. A little boy feels lost for seemingly no reason, a feeling his father very much relates to but cannot resolve. The boy struggles between appreciating the earth and being a homebody, between understanding nature in a museum and actually physically experiencing it in person.

One’s relationship with nature is a very personal one that goes hand in hand with finding your purpose in the world. It can be a lot for a little kid’s mind – and for an adult’s mind too! This film touches on this concept beautifully and provides wonderful tools for finding peace and purpose while being content with the vast unknown.
