The Point


This charming animated musical, featuring pop music by Harry Nilsson and narrated by Ringo Starr, tells the story of Oblio, a round-headed boy living in the land of “Point,” where everything and everyone has one (a pointed head, that is). Because he’s different than the rest, Oblio, along with his trusty dog, Arrow, is banished to the Pointless Forest. Will he figure out how to fit in, or will embrace his roundness and learn to love being a round boy in a pointed world? (Dir. by Fred Wolf, 1971, USA, 74 mins., Rated G) Digital
