“A surprisingly moving tale of friendship and family, dressed up as an adorably frivolous sci-fi comedy.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people, he forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip who is on a quest of her own. Through a series of comic adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is all part of being human. And as he changes her planet and she changes his world, they both discover the true meaning of the word “Home.” This funny and moving animated adventure, filled with bubbly comedy and an uplifting message of cross-cultural friendship, features the superstar voice talents of Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez. Based on the bestselling children’s book, The True Meaning of Smeckday, by Adam Rex. (Dir. by Tim Johnson, 2015, USA, 94 mins., Rated PG)
