Bear with Me


Kids try to defend the environment by taking on a big lumber company, only to get lost in the wilderness where the company is stripping the land of timber. One girl gets the assistance of a bear as she copes with being afraid and alone for several days in the wilderness.

Dove Review

This film was very well done and is a good family-friendly film. An orphaned bear cub is adopted by little Emily and her family. They name the cub Masha, raise her and release her back into the wild, thinking they’ll never see Masha again. Three years go by, and Emily, now 11 years old, has gotten lost deep in the wild forests of the Pacific Northwest. Cold, frightened and alone in the gathering darkness, she falls and is knocked unconscious. When she awakens, Emily is amazed to see that a large brown bear has kept her warm and dry all night by cuddling her. It’s Masha—and Emily is overjoyed to be reunited with the bear just when she needs a friend the most.

Together the two bravely set off on an adventure to find their way home. But, there seems to be danger at every turn—cougars, wolves, bear hunters and other bears—and the two special friends find they need each other now more than ever. “Bear With Me” is a tale the whole family will find as exciting as it is heart-warming, and the magnificent forests of the Pacific Northwest lend this story of loyalty, friendship, and adventure a magic all its own.
