Movie Summary

Andrew Stanton (I)

Finding Nemo is a 2003 animated comedy about a clownfish searching for his missing son. Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Coral (Elizabeth Perkins) are two clownfish preparing to start a family when they are attacked by a barracuda. During the fight, Coral and all but one egg are killed and eaten. Horrified by what happened, Marlin takes the lone remaining egg and hides it. It eventually hatches and becomes his son, Nemo (Alexander Gould). Owing to the circumstances of his wife's death, Marlin becomes an extremely overprotective father. Naturally, Nemo longs to break away from his father's constant close supervision. On his first day of school, Nemo swims away from his group and is captured by a scuba diver. Panicked, Marlin sets out to find his son and bring him home safely. With the assistance of the kind but foolish fish, Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), he races against time and space to bring Nemo home, but how will he ever find him in such a huge ocean?

    Very clever and imaginative indeed, and its pictures are so gorgeous that they alone could warrant a second viewing.
