Dir. George Miller. U.S./Australia. 2006, 108 mins. DCP. With the voices of Elijah Wood, Brittany Murphy, Robin Williams, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman. In a colony of emperor penguins in remote Antarctica, Mumble (Elijah Wood) is the odd one out. Where the other penguins express fellowship through singing, he must forge a unique path to find love and respect through his dancing feet. Directed by George Miller (Babe, Mad Max: Fury Road) and choreographed by Tony-winner Savion Glover, Happy Feet is a delightful, funny musical adventure that also carries an environmental message. The film’s astonishing CG animation, which uses motion capture to adapt Glover’s moves onto a massive chorus line of tap-dancing penguins, still looks fresh 15 years after its initial release. Winner of the 2006 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Rated PG, recommended for ages 7+
