Synopsis


Ernest & Célestine
A towering bear named Ernest befriends a tiny mouse named Celestine in this gentle adaptation of the beloved children's book by author Gabrielle Vincent. Celestine (voice of Mackenzie Foy) is an orphaned mouse who lives underground. An artist at heart, Celestine is training to become a dentist when she meets cantankerous bear Ernest (voice of Forest Whitaker), who has emerged from his remote woodland cottage in search of food, and nearly becomes his breakfast. Instead of being frightened by Ernest like most mice, however, Celestine strikes up a friendship with the misunderstood giant. Before long Ernest and Celestine are inseparable, but can their friendship last in a world where mice have been taught to fear bears, and bears have been taught never to play with their food? Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, William H. Macy, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, and Jeffrey Wright also lend their voices to this traditionally animated children's fantasy that was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 2014 Academy Awards. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    This is one of my most favorite animated films of all time! The art direction is simplistic at heart but a refreshing change of pace compared to the saturation of CG effects in today's market. The characters are wonderfully charming and have hilarious interactions. I did have an issue with the fluctuating size comparisons, though. I was pleasantly surprised how Forest Whitaker played the role of Ernest. I always see him playing serious roles. I wish there was a special feature on the American voice actors.

    Great voice acting done by actors that young children will not care about. Reminds me of animation from my childhood. Children will not realize. The main characters are cute, and my 3 youngest children enjoyed the film. My 16 y/o daughter who is attending art/animation focused high school tolerated the time watching.
