White Wall Cinema's Socially Distanced Winter Screen presents
TUESDAY DECEMBER 22ND
THE IRON GIANT-SIGNATURE EDITION (2015)
DIRECTOR: Brad Bird
STARRING: Vin Diesel, Eli Marienthal, Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick Jr., Christopher McDonald and John Mahoney.
Based on the classic novel, director Brad Bird has created a classic piece in it's own right in this brilliant and heartfelt adaptation, that initially failed at the box office, but has subsequently been recognised as one of the great animations of the modern era. As well as previously being the screenwriter on 80s classic Batteries Not Included, Bird went on to direct superior Pixar hits such as The Incredibles 1 & 2, and Ratatouille, and his full range of sensitivity is on display here as he brings out the full possibilities of the story's essentially existentialist qualities whilst maintaining the beautiful simplicity of a 'children's' film. When a gigantic iron man crash lands in the 1950's town of Rockwell, young Hogarth (with local beatnik type Dean) befriends, and attempts to hide the 50ft child like innocent from U.S. authorities who are in the grip of cold war paranoia. This newer remastered version, that includes previously unseen scenes is must see on the big screen this Christmas, so you can witness the tender heart of perhaps the most empathetic and exhilarating mainstream American animated feature ever made ,a near-perfect, classical expression of imagination, that combines childlike wonder and adult sophistication.
