Flatland: The Movie is an exciting half-hour animated film based on Edwin Abbott's classic novel. Flatland is an entirely two-dimensional world where different shapes live, work, and play--all under the rule of the evil Circles who are determined to keep the third dimension a secret, at any cost. The story follows Arthur Square (Martin Sheen) and his curious granddaughter Hex (Kristen Bell). When the mysterious visitor Spherius (Michael York) arrives from Spaceland, Arthur and Hex face grave danger as they begin to come to terms with the truth of the third dimension. Combining action, drama, geometry, and sociopolitical commentary, this moving story challenges audiences to grasp the limitations of their assumptions about reality and to think about the possibility of higher and previously inconceivable dimensions (both literal and metaphorical).
Loved the movie, I will be buying #2...Sphereland! Interesting how a children's movie about geometry parallels a deeper meaning of our society today. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Suzie M Murphy

|Movie or book???????||
There IS a DVD version (which you can also purchase securely at www.flatlandthemovie.com) but in early 2008 Princeton Press will release a new hardback edition of the book with artwork from the movie and the screenplay. Somehow the details of both products got mangled... hopefully temporarily.
