The Iron Giant

1999 / 86min / DCP

DIRECTOR: BRAD BIRD

In 1957 in the all-American town of Rockwell, Maine, something wholly unexpected happens one day—a massive robot from somewhere in the deep of space washes up on the seashore and befriends a local boy, Hogarth Hughes. Before The Incredibles and Ratatouille, Bird wowed audiences with this, his awesome and touching feature debut, which seamlessly blends the computer-generated giant with hand-drawn humans, and is filled with clever period references, from Beat culture to late-night TV sci-fi.
