The Simpsons Movie
dir. David Silverman, 2007, USA, 35mm, 87mins. color
Homer Simpson accidentally causes an environmental catastrophe which could doom Springfield forever. Now he must save the city and rescue his family. Springfield's usual characters and new favorites all turn up in the first ever movie length version of the hit TV show, 18 years in the making. The Springfield citizenry have every reason to be out for Simpson blood. The calamity triggered by Homer has drawn the attention of U.S. President Arnold Schwarzenegger and Environmental Protection Agency head Russ Cargill (voiced by Albert Brooks). Homer then embarks on a personal odyssey of redemption -- seeking forgiveness from Marge, the reunion of his splintered family, and the salvation of his hometown.
