Free Outdoor Screening: Finding Nemo

Recommended for all ages

The humor bubbling through Finding Nemo is so fresh, sure of itself and devoid of the cutesy, saccharine condescension that drips through so many family comedies that you have to wonder what it is about the Pixar technology that inspires the creators to be so endlessly inventive.

In the colorful and warm tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, a clown fish named Marlin lives safe and secluded in his anemone home with his only son, Nemo, who like all young fish, is eager to explore the mysterious reef. Writer-director Andrew Stanton recalls: “I grew up in Massachusetts, by the sea, and I remember going to my family dentist, who had this funky fish tank in his office. All kids are attracted to aquariums, and I remember staring at this tank and thinking what a weird view of the world this must be for the fish—it’s like flying into Las Vegas and that’s your first view of America.”
