(1999) dir Brad Bird w/Eli Marienthal, Vin Diesel, Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Aniston [90 min; DCP]
A young boy befriends a giant alien robot in this sweet, animated coming-of-age film. Written and directed by a pre-Pixar Brad Bird (The Incredibles), IRON GIANT was weirdly overlooked at the time of its release but has since become a cult classic with kids and adults alike.
“The Iron Giant is a solid, not to say ironclad, winner in the less than overcrowded family animation arena.” – Jay Carr, Boston Globe
“Delivers robot action, retro nostalgia and stony metaphysics.” – Mary Elizabeth Williams, Salon.com
“Remarkably unassuming, genuinely playful, and superbly executed, The Iron Giant towers over the cartoon landscape.” – J. Hoberman, Village Voice
