March of the Penguins
Billed as a love story in "the harshest place on earth," this is actually a National Geographic–style study of Antarctica's oldest inhabitants—emperor penguins—during their winter mating season. Director Luc Jacquet tracks a deadly dance of life at the edge of the world, with exquisite footage of a beautiful, forbidding locale that most of us will never visit. An accessible score and Morgan Freeman's avuncular narration make this march family-friendly, too. Birth, death, romance, danger: All play a role in Jacquet's homage to a remarkably endearing creature.
