The Lorax (2-Mar-2012)

Directors: Kyle Balda; Chris Renaud

Writers: Ken Daurio; Cinco Paul

From novel: The Lorax by Dr. Seuss (juvenile literature)

Keywords: Fantasy

Film adaptation of the classic Dr. Seuss tale tells the story of a boy, a wise creature, and a guardian of the forest's attempts to resist an increasingly-synthetic world.

Ted Wiggins, a twelve-year old boy living in an entirely artificial walled city, is enamored with the concept of impressing a love interest by bringing her a rare specimen of a real-life tree. Encouraged by his interests, Ted's grandmother relates the story of the Once-ler to him, a wise individual who seeks to be reunited with the Lorax, the guardian of the forests and last remaining voice against the reckless expansion of an ever-synthetic existence.
