The Tale of Despereaux
Source: Catholic News Service
Charming animated adventure story about a chivalrous mouse (voice of Matthew Broderick) who is banished to a rat-filled tunnel for fearlessly befriending a distressed human princess (voice of Emma Watson), contrary to the timid customs of his society, and gains the protection of a globe-trotting rat (voice of Dustin Hoffman) with gourmet tastes, who also dreams of derring-do. Though somewhat overloaded with multiple plot lines, co-directors Sam Fell and Rob Stevenhagen's painterly adaptation of Kate DiCamillo's 2003 best-selling, Newbery Medal-winning children's novel is delightfully innocent and idealistic as it celebrates its hero's sense of honor and love of reading and charts his companion's discovery of the power of forgiveness. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I—general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is G—general audiences; all ages admitted.
