Spike Jonze brings the world of Maurice Sendak’s legendary children’s book to life. Max (Max Records) is wild and rambunctious – and the way any young boy might be – sometimes a little too much. The real world, however, is no match for Max’s imagination and when his antics lead his mother (Catherine Keener) to send him to bed, young Max decides to sail beyond the confines of his room to a magical world where he meets new friends including, Carol (James Gandolfini) and KW (Lauren Ambrose) and embarks on the greatest adventure.
In this film by director Roland Emmerich (“The Day After Tomorrow”), a writer (John Cusak), his estranged wife (Amanda Peet) and two children join the world in a race to survive an apocalyptic disaster. As the world around them begins to crumble, nations panic as governments and world leaders look for ways to save the world from utter destruction and everyday people become heroic survivors.
An all star cast including, Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Cloris Leachman, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin and Betty White lend their voices to this animated adventure about a young boy who rescues a goldfish who turns out to be more than he could have ever imagined. Ponyo, as she is named, turns into a human being, a girl. But her adventure is just beginning and the two friends will embark on a magical journey that will bring the sea to life.
