City of Ember
DVD 
Price: $7.99

The lights are going out in the City of Ember, a time-limited underground haven created some 200 years ago by the higher-ups of humanity in a world on the brink of disaster. Meanwhile, many of it's literally and figuratively in-the-dark citizens don't suspect a thing. The only wise ones are two plucky teenagers (Saoirse Ronan, Harry Tread away) who are devoted to finding-with or without the help of the cagey Mayor Cole (Bill Murray) the exit from Ember. Screenwriting credit for CITY OF EMBER, a refreshing fantasy film based on the first novel in author Jeanne DuPrau's sci-fi/adventure series for young adults, belongs to none other than Caroline Thompson. She's a silver screen veteran of family- friendly otherworldliness who's collaborated on many of Tim Burton's most definitive projects, and indeed she's brought to this live-action sophomore effort from enthusiastic movie-geek director Gil Kenan (MONSTER HOUSE) a miniaturist sensibility reminiscent of the condensed and simply plotted eccentricity of CORPSE BRIDE and a NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS. Director Gil Kenan Starring Bill Murray, Tim Robbins, Martin Landau, Mary Kay Place, Toby Jones, Special Features: Widescreen - 2.35 Full Frame - 1.33 Audio: Dolby Surround 5.1 - English Dolby Surround - French, Spanish Subtitles - English, French, Spanish Optional Running Time 123 Minutes.
