G. 97 mins

A captivating masterpiece that holds our attention without hardly any dialogue – WALL-E is a poignant tale for all ages. Disney and Pixar brings us to the year 2700 where earth is no longer inhabited by humans and one lonely robot, Wall-e, continues to compress trash and collect small treasures to pass the time. Suddenly, he comes across a far more advanced robot, Eve, who discovers that Wall-e possesses a treasure that could make Earth livable for humans once more. Wall-e follows Eve through space and eventually to a spacecraft that holds all remaining life from earth in order to find his true purpose and keep his one and only friend. Stanton (Finding Nemo) directs the brilliant film which deals with such grand themes as loneliness, love and loss using the simple but astoundly affective expressions of a robot. WALL-E is Pixar’s most profound, and perhaps best film to date – * * * * 1/2
