Day 259

movie: The Lorax
starring: Danny DeVito, Zac Efron
genre: Cartoon, Drama,
year: 2012
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: A young man moves to the forest and starts to chop down all the trees in order to make his fortune. But along the way, he learns that his actions are bad for everyone

This is based on the classic children's book by Dr. Seuss.
The story is a straight up morality fable.  It was ahead of it's time, with it's message of global responsibility.

At first, you wouldn't have thought DeVito as the mystical creature the Lorax, but after a few minutes you begin to see the genius of it.

Don't know how much of it will sink in for younger audiences, but it does give in to the many musical numbers that seems to be in anything as of late that's geared to younger audiences.

what do i think i learned from this film?
Learning to take responsibility for your actions and to take care of your environment, because it will ripple out in time to affect others. You are what you do.
