The first animated feature from legendary filmmaker Don Bluth (The Land Before Time; An American Tail) is a thrilling adaption of Robert C. O’Brien’s acclaimed children’s book, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of N.I.M.H.

“This classic ‘80s animated film really stands the test of time.  It’s exciting, thought-provoking and beautifully crafted.  I’d put this movie up against anything coming out from Pixar today.” – Jen Johnson, Den of Geek

The movie follows a brave widowed mouse named Mrs. Brisby (renamed from the book), who must move her children out of their home in a field before the local farmer starts plowing. Unable to leave because her son is ill, Mrs. Brisby, with the assistance of a kooky crow, seeks the help of a secret society of rats called NIMH, who have heightened intelligence after being the subjects of scientific experiments at a nearby lab. The rats help Mrs. Brisby protect her family and home, but after receiving an unexpected gift from the elder rat, Nicodemus, Mrs. Brisby is soon caught in a conflict among the rats, jeopardizing her mission.  (Dir. by Don Bluth, 1982, USA, 82 mins., Rated G)
