Friday, August 19, 2011
From Academy Award nominated director Dominique Monféry comes a sumptuously animated movie about a magic library where all the characters from classic children’s books come alive. Nat has fond memories of his eccentric Aunt Eleanor reading to him from her enormous collection of storybooks but is frustrated by his inability to read the books himself. So he is less than thrilled when he learns that his aunt has left him the keys to her attic library as a gift. However, just as Nat’s parents are selling the collection to a shady antiques dealer, Nat discovers that the library is magical: the books are all original first editions of history’s most popular fairy tales, and the famous characters come to life! Eleanor’s Secret is a beautifully designed adventure which features characters from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, and more! (93 min)
