CITY OF EMBER cover image
The suspense kept the kids engaged. "Dune kept telling his dad that the black-outs were getting longer, which made you really want to know what would happen to the city." "I liked how Lena and Dune kept getting clues on how to get out of the City of Ember." "We felt like we were on the boat with them!" "A great film!"
Wonderful adventure film - perfect for families. This science fiction story, taking place 200 years in the future, grabs your attention from the beginning and holds it through the ending. Wonderful cast with well-known celebrities who bring their own spin to their characters. Everyone wanted to read the book after watching the film.
A heart-thumping, edge-of-your-seat adventure comes to light in this exhilarating family film based on the best-selling novel by Jeanne Duprau. For centuries, the residents of the underground City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights and quiet contentment. But when the City's massive power generator begins to fail, the street lamps start to fade -- along with the hopes and dream of the townspeople. Now it's up to two courageous teenagers to follow a trail of clues left by the ancient Builders and find a way out of Ember before their world is plunged into darkness forever! Starring Bill Murray (Ghostbusters); Tim Robbins (War of the Worlds); Saorise Ronan (Academy Award Nominee: Atonement)
