The Indian in the Cupboard

It sounds like a pun to say THE INDIAN IN THE CUPBOARD feels small, because you see, it’s about a tiny little man who lives in a regular sized kid’s bedroom. But it also is a movie that feels small, in a good way. Based on the 1980 children’s novel by Lynne Reid Banks, it’s the story of a kid named Omri (Hal Scardino, SEARCHING FOR BOBBY FISCHER) who discovers that he has one of those magic cupboards that turns miniature toys into living beings. The first one he does is a model Indian, who becomes an Iroquois warrior named Little Bear (Litefoot, MORTAL KOMBAT: ANNIHILATION). So Omri keeps li’l Little Bear in his bedroom, protects him, gives him materials to build a longhouse with (after he rejects a plastic teepee, having no idea what a teepee is). So it’s a movie full of what must’ve been really difficult special... Omri is not an adorable bowl-cut child star moppet, or a precocious miniature adult, he’s a normal, gawky kid. Maybe a nerd, but too young to know it. Even when skateboarding he has no delusions of being cool. Coolness does not seem like something he yearns for. His idea of attainable cool is wearing two watches at the same time. I guess he must have some envy of coolness, because when a kid with purple hair shaved on the sides steals his money Omri yells angrily, “You don’t deserve that hair. Even his teenage brothers (including Vincent Kartheiser from ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE ), who are more outgoing, have a pretty dorky obsession that only kids would have: they keep begging their dad to build a skylight in their room. The one thing I can’t figure out is why one of them gave Omri an antique cabinet for his birthday. And is that sweet, because they understand him, or sad, because they know their brother is a cupboard-loving weirdo. Little Bear is scared of this giant boy at first, then he comes to befriend him, but seeing him as “Great Spirit,” since he’s a giant with the power to snatch him from his world (yes, the toys exist as humans on some other plane or timeline). Then there’s an incident where Omri brings an older Mohawk Chief (George Randall, CON AIR) to life in a clever ploy to get Little Bear a bow. The Chief sees giant Omri and falls over dead. Little Bear is non-judgmental about it at first, understanding that the man was old and at the end of his days. But when Omri is scared and not wanting to deal with the consequences by burying him he gets enraged at the dumb kid. Source: The Life and Art of Vern
