Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Andrew Stanton. 2008, 97 mins. DCP. With its wide-set E.T.-like eyes and tiny, motorized R2D2 body, trash compactor Wall-E is one of Pixar’s most poignant creations. Left all alone on a patch of a now uninhabitable Earth, the lonely little robot has no friends other than an old VHS of Hello, Dolly! Wall-E’s routine is disrupted by the appearance of a sleek newer-model robot, the beginning of a mission that will take them both to the spaceship that is the final outpost for a possibly doomed humanity. Vivid animation and superb character effects make for a remarkably textured journey that also functions as a trenchant social satire. Recommended for ages 5+
