Oscar-Nominated Film "The Illusionist"

Tuesday September 13, 2011: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Ready for magic and animation? Watch "The Illusionist" at the library! The film features an outdated, aging magician, forced to wander from country to country and city to city in search of a stage to perform his act. Along the way, he meets a young girl at the start of her life's journey. Their destinies collide, but nothing - not even magic or the power of illusion - can stop this voyage of discovery. The girl does not realize that she loves the Illusionist as a father. The Illusionist knows that he loves her as a daughter and is willing to stop at nothing to provide for her.

This movie was nominated for 2010's Oscar for Best Animated Film. Sylvain Chomet, the Oscar-nominated and critically acclaimed creator of "The Triplets of Belleville," adapted the script by French comedy genius Jacques Tati and brought it to life in his distinctive hand-drawn animated style.

This compelling 80-minute animated film is rated PG.
