"You should see Happy Feet - not only because it's stupendous, but also because it features the best dancing you'll see on the screen this year." - New York Magazine
Footloose, penguin style! George Miller’s adorable 2006 animated musical, Happy Feet, screens May 14 & 15 at the Gables Cinema as part of our monthly Family Day on Aragon series! Mumble (voiced by Elijah Woods), a penguin born deep in Antarctica, learns he has a disastrous singing voice and no heartsong – two faults that virtually doom his chances for finding a partner. He also discovers he has an uncanny – and very unpenguinlike – ability to tap dance! Mumble is banished from the tribe and bravely sets out on a perilous adventure, meeting a band of dance-loving misfits, an all-knowing Rockhopper penguin, and plenty of hungry sea creatures along the way. With a top-notch voice cast including Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Brittany Murphy, Hugh Jackman, and Nicole Kidman, Happy Feet proves that sometimes our most distinct differences are also our greatest strengths. During the 2007 Oscars, Happy Feet stole the show and took home the 2007 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. This film is appropriate for ages 7 and up.
