City of Ember
Source: Catholic News Service
Imaginative futuristic tale about a doomed underground city whose inhabitants know nothing of the world above, and a brave girl (Saoirse Ronan) and resourceful inventor's son (Harry Treadaway) who try to discover the secret way out before the city's failing generator breaks down completely. With an intricate and clever production design, and an interesting cast including Bill Murray, Tim Robbins, Martin Landau and Toby Jones, first-time feature director Gil Kenan's well-paced adaptation of Jeanne DuPrau's novel imparts good values and makes excellent family entertainment for all but the youngest viewers who might be frightened by a particularly scary monster and some other scenes of peril. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I—general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG—parental guidance suggested; some material may not be suitable for children.
