Holiday Movie : Dr Seuss The Lorax

Posted on: August 22, 2012

As a result of not being able to go anywhere due to daddy is sick, I watched this movie together with my girls: Dr Seuss The Lorax.

Though I haven’t read the book,  I am glad that they make a film out of it.

The story started in a walled city called Thneed-Ville, where everything is artificial and even the air is a commodity (and the girls laughed seeing how they ‘pump’ up a tree). A boy named Ted hopes to win the heart of his dream girl, Audrey. When he learns of her wish to see a real tree, Ted seeks out the Once-ler, a ruined old businessman outside of town in a stark wasteland. . . 

And I like the message they put in the ending, which I read aloud to my girls:

“Unless someone like you…cares a whole awful lot…nothing is going to get better…It’s not.” 

Sigh, as one of the book review I got:

Long before saving the earth became a global concern, Dr. Seuss, speaking through his character the Lorax, warned against mindless progress and the danger it posed to the earth’s natural beauty.
