A delightful undersea world unfolds in Pixar’s animated adventure Finding Nemo. When his son Nemo is captured by a scuba-diver, a nervous clownfish named Marlin sets off into the vast ocean to look for him. Along the way, he meets a scatterbrained blue fish named Dory who is both helpful and a hindrance, sometimes at the same time. Faced with sharks, deep-sea anglers, fields of poisonous jellyfish, sea turtles, pelicans, and much more, Marlin discovers a bravery within himself that he never knew existed.
While many might think Finding Nemo is a film for children, who indeed, have adored the vibrant characters and funny situations, it is actually full of deeper meaning and texture that will truly resonate with parents and teachers.
