His name is Blu and you’d be too, if your species were dwindling away. This Thursday the Murphy Library is showing the family-friendly animated comedy, Rio, about a sweet blue parrot in Minnesota who is needed in Rio de Janeiro to save his species from dying out. 

In English with a few Portuguese words for fun.  Rated PG.   Screenings at 4 and 6 p.m.   Running time is 96 minutes.  Call 837-2417 for details.

Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway are the voices for Blu, the male macaw and Jewel, the feisty female.  Carlos Saldanha is the director.  He also directed Ice Age: The Meltdown (2006),  and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009), but his film Rio must be close to his heart since he was born and grew up in Rio de Janeiro.
