A live-action/animated comedy film might not sound very tense but Who Framed Roger Rabbit will keep you on the ‘Edge of Your Seat’ on Thursday, December 5 at 6:30pm at the Wildish Community Theater. The film is set in 1947 Los Angeles where ‘Toons’ – cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse and Porky Pig – live and act alongside humans in movies and commercials. After discovering that his wife may have been unfaithful, Toon Star Roger Rabbit (voiced by Charles Fleischer) is accused of murder and must convince hard-boiled toon-hating private detective, Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) to save him from the clutches of Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd). Filled with cameos of animation stars from the golden age of animation, the film won Academy Awards for Best Film Editing, Best Sound Effects Editing and Best Visual Effects with animator Richard Williams receiving a Special Achievement Academy Award for the film’s animation.
Starring Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd and Joanna Cassidy; directed by Robert Zemeckis; 104 minutes; 1988; Rated PG.
Watch the film and stay for a short after-film discussion! The movie and discussion are free to attend. The ongoing film series is presented by Plank Town Restaurant and Brewery and coordinated by a partnership between the Springfield Library, the Springfield Library Foundation, and Willamalane Park& Recreation District.
