“A fabulous animated feature, funny, touching, vivid and, best of all, humane… Superb.” The Washington Post

In this beloved and critically-acclaimed animated feature, an inquisitive young boy named Hogarth Hughes forms a powerful friendship with a gentle robot visitor from outer space. An adaptation of Ted Hughes’ Cold War fable, the film follows the adventures of Hogarth and the Iron Giant as they try to save the misunderstood giant machine from destruction by a paranoid government agent. The Iron Giant is considered one of the classic animated gems of its era, featuring the voices of Vin Diesel, Jennifer Aniston and Harry Connick Jr. and a beautiful mix of hand-drawn and Computer Generated Imagery. This captivating film is part metal, part magic and all heart. (1999, 86 minutes)
