City of Ember (25-Sep-2008)
Director: Gil Kenan
Writer: Caroline Thompson
From novel: The City of Ember by Jeanne Duprau
Film adaptation of the 2003 novel of the same name follows two teens as they race to save their utopian city from catastrophic ruin.
Scientists living during humanity's end times stave off total extinction by creating a city beneath the surface of the Earth. The blueprint for the city, named Ember, is rather simple: Ember will exist for two hundred years, at which point its leaders will act on instructions to return to the surface. The instructions are lost to time as the years wear on; now, as Ember's time is almost up and its miraculous power system shows signs of an impending critical failure, two teenagers must work to uncover the lost plans for escape and save their people.
