ABOUT FINDING NEMO

In this stunning underwater adventure teeming with memorable comedic characters and heartfelt emotion, “Finding Nemo” follows the momentous journey of an overprotective clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) and his young son Nemo (voiced by Alexander Gould). When the two are unexpectedly separated in the Great Barrier Reef, Nemo is carried far from his ocean home and deposited in a fish tank in a dentist’s office. Buoyed by the companionship of Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic effort to rescue his son––who hatches a few daring plans of his own to return safely home.

“Finding Nemo” is directed by Oscar® winner Andrew Stanton, co-directed by Oscar winner Lee Unkrich, produced by Graham Walters. The music is from Thomas Newman and screenplay is written by Andrew Stanton, Bob Peterson and David Reynolds.

MY THOUGHTS

I received a copy of Finding Nemo. I saw this years ago, and it is one of my favorite Disney Pixar movies. I really feel for Marlin, the clownfish, from the beginning of the story. He’s moving into a new home with his wife to start a family. He tries to protect his wife and their eggs and fails. Nemo is the only egg that survives. As a result, Marlin is very overprotective. In an effort to prove he isn’t a baby on the first day of school, Nemo swims where he shouldn’t and gets captured by deep sea divers, which is how he ends up in the fish tank in the dentist’s office. Nemo meets other fish while in the tank, and helps work on an escape out of the tank before he will be presented to the dentist’s niece Darla in a few days. Marlin goes to every length possible to find his son, with the help of Dory, a friendly and forgetful blue fish. Both Marlin and Dory face and overcome various dangerous situations while searching for Nemo. Sharks, jellyfish, whale and more. When Marlin finally reaches Sydney, where the dentist’s office is, he arrives just in time to see Nemo floating lifelessly. Full of despair, he heads for home, leaving Dory. When Dory encounters a young clownfish named Nemo, she remembers that name is important and rushes to find Marlin. The father and son are happily reunited.
