Flatland–The Movie

When I first read Edwin Abbott’s Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (1884) over a decade ago I was really impressed with both his storytelling skill and his vision for the human predicament. That is, we live in a multidimensional universe, but our socialization often encourages us to tune out anything but everyday, ordinary social, cultural  and economic phenomena. Thus, we become like the main character in Flatland, aware of a larger universe but unable to connect with it without feeling ridiculed, ostracized, or worse.

Now the book has been turned into animated movie featuring the voice of Martin Sheen and other actors. I thought they did a great job with it, preserving the impact of the original story while benefiting from the latest animation techniques. Read more about the Flatland movie here.
