Synopsis: A giant metal machine falls to Earth in 1950s Maine, frightening townspeople. However, the robot befriends a nine-year-old boy named Hogarth who must save it from the predjudices of the townspeople and from a government agent intent on destroying the robot.
Drury University professor Steve Carpenter will lead a post show discussion after the film.
"Heart and tenderness are rare in cartoon movies. But in an age of frenetic children's fare, the new animated adventure The Iron Giant dares to show a lot of both, and it comes up a winner."- Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"The Iron Giant is funny, warm, muscular and full of nuances that you can take home with you and talk about."- Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle
"While youngsters will enjoy the film on one level, it reaches out to adults on a completely different plane. They will see an allegory about power and politics and the danger of allowing either to run roughshod over humanity."- Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
