Flatland: The Movie (DVD)
Based on the Victorian-era novel by Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland: The Movie is an animated adventure set in a two-dimensional world inhabited by sentient geometric shapes. When a mysterious visitor arrives from Spaceland, our protagonist Arthur Square, and his granddaughter Hex, get enlightened to the truth of a third dimension—and risking dire consequences to speaking of their discovery by their cruel overlords, the Circles. Easy for kids to understand, and conceptually entertaining for adults, this film also teaches basic geometric concepts. With the voices of Martin Sheen, Kristen Bell and Michael York. 34 minutes.
