“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” Dr. Seuss
Under the deeper meanings of corporate greed, love, caring, and the message that one person can make a difference, “Dr. Suess’ The Lorax” is a beautiful visual movie that both entertains and educates.
Audrey dreams of seeing a real tree, and Ted decides to find one.
Grammy Norma (Betty White) remembers trees and tells Ted he needs to leave town (not an easy task) to ask the Once-ler (Ed Helms) where he might find one.
At the Once-ler’s house, Ted learns the story of how trees disappeared: A deeply disturbing commentary of many of the worlds ills, but, made for kids to enjoy and, hopefully, learn.
“Dr. Suess’ The Lorax” is a stunningly beautiful movie. The graphics are astounding and the story is simultaneously colorful & bleak and joyful & depressing. Ok for kids (in fact most of the audience were knee high) and ok for adults and teens (as long as you learn the lesson being taught!). No f-words, no cursing at all.
Oh…Danny DeVito is wonderful as The Lorax. I wonder if Taylor Swift will now write a song about Ted? 🙂
