DIRECTOR: MATTHEW ROBBINS
CAST: HUME CRONYN, JESSICA TANDY
Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy are among the tenants of an East Village apartment block slated for demolition by nefarious developers who won’t stop short of employing strongarm tactics to get their way—but they haven’t reckoned on the arrival on the scene of alien mechanoids, tiny sentient spaceships dubbed The Fix-Its by the longtime building residents, who enter the fray on the side of their new friends, fighting back against the developers and their gang hirelings. The screenwriting debut of future Pixar wizard Brad Bird, with oodles of wonderment courtesy James Horner’s score and the charming design of the fabulous Fix-Its.
