“Up” is for young and old – this Thursday

Posted on: November 30, 2009


A 78-year-old man wants to follow his late wife’s dream to visit South America.  A trip across continents is not out of the ordinary.  But flying a house there is.  Especially if balloons filled with helium are transporting it.  Lots of balloons.  The Murphy Public Library is showing Pixar Studios latest film, “Up” Thursday at 3:15 p.m. and again at 6 p.m.  It is rated PG and runs 96 minutes. 


Widower Carl Fredricksen (voiced by Ed Asner) thinks he’s alone on this journey of a lifetime.  But he’s not.  Russell, an eight-year-old Wilderness Explorer had stopped by Carl’s house to “help the elderly” and win another badge for his sash.  Little did he imagine the house would pick up and leave.
And that’s just for starters.  Talking dogs, tropical birds and an evil scientist make this a trip for young and old.
