An American Tail

Play Trailer

The year is 1885, and a family of Ukrainian mice, the Mousekewitz’s, are attacked by torch-bearing Cossack cats. They escape, ultimately setting sail for the New World, where the American dream is alive and well, promising these tired, poor, huddled mice a land where there are no cats, and the streets are paved with cheese! With its wonderful musical numbers and timeless themes of tolerance and compassion, Don Bluth’s animated adventure remains a joy from start to heartwarming finish.

The recommended minimum age for this film is 5.
