“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
It’s not. “ - Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
Thanks to the Free Movie passes sponsored by the Climate Change Commission of the Philippines, I was finally able to watch The LORAX on the big screen, better yet on IMAX 3D!
From the creators of the movie “Despicable Me” and the brilliant authorship of Dr. Seuss comes the spectacular 3D-CGI adaptation of the favorite children’s classic, The Lorax.
Set on a futuristic society where plastic dominates everything and even the mere air bought, the colorful animated story follows the adventure of Ted, a 12-year old boy, as he search for the one thing that will earn him the love and affection of his dream girl. His clues will inevitably lead him to discover the grim condition of the environment outside the city he lives in and his quest would bring him to the doorstep of Once-ler. After gaining Once-ler’s trust, he will chance upon the story of The Lorax, the cute, fluffy, adorable creature who doubles as the guardian of the forest and speaker for the trees.
True to the virtues of the book, the movie doesn’t only feature spectacular visual entertainment but more importantly it highlights the significance of taking care of the environment before it’s too late. It teaches its audience, both the young and young-at-hearts, about caring for our surroundings, its relevance and the grim consequences that blackens our future should we fail.
