Movie Review: The Lorax

by M. J. Joachim

Dr. Seuss stories make for some amazing animation. The characters are charming, while the thought-provoking tale fully engages the audience.

The Lorax is an intriguing satire about greed, jealousy and control. I couldn’t help but think about how society never dreamed selling water would be profitable. In The Lorax, the story is about selling air. The parallels did not escape me. 

True to form, Dr. Seuss’s story shares the consequences of one’s actions, providing a reasonable solution to remedy the ill-effects of poor decisions on a happier note. It’s a good movie, one children and adults will find information and enjoyable.

I’m so glad you stopped in for a visit today, and look forward to seeing you again soon.
