Dr. Seuss’s allegory on environmentalism and the perils of corporate greed makes the trip from beloved book to beloved film in this animated feature. The film largely mirrors the structure of the book with twelve-year-old Ted (Zac Efron) making his home in a place virtually devoid of nature: no flowers or trees grow in the town of Thneedville.

Ted would very much like to win the heart of Audrey (Taylor Swift), the girl of his dreams, but to do this, he must find that which she most desires: a Truffula tree. To get it, Ted delves into the story of the Lorax (Danny DeVito), once the gruff guardian of the forest, and the Once-ler (Ed Helms), who let greed overtake his respect for nature.

Sponsored by the Meg and John P. Brogan Endowment for Classic Cinema.
