Directed and animated by Academy Award-Winner Fred Wolf (Free to Be… You & Me) with story and songs written by Grammy Award-Winner Harry Nilsson and narration by Ringo Starr, The Point is a timeless enchanting fable for the whole family!
“The Point is a cult classic masterpiece of animation with a great message and songs that you’ll hum for the rest of your life.” – Joe Corey, Inside Pulse
Years ago there was a fantastical place called The Land of the Point, because everything in The Land of the Point had one – the barns, the houses, the cars, everything – even the people. Everyone, that is, except Oblio (Mike Lookinland, “Bobby” from The Brady Bunch), who was born round-headed. Since he had no point, Oblio – along with his trusty dog, Arrow – was banished to the Pointless Forest. Soon, these two intrepid travelers are experiencing grand adventures as they make their way on their amazing, song-filled journey of discovery to find out if having no point does, in fact, have a point all its own! Featuring Nilsson’s unforgettably catchy tunes – like Me and My Arrow and Everybody’s Got ‘Em – oddball animation, and a relevant message of self-acceptance and tolerance, The Point is still as sharp as ever! (Dir. by Fred Wolf, 1972, USA, 64 mins., Not Rated / suitable for all ages)
