Winter Break: Family Films

Revisit an acclaimed family film this holiday season. The animated adventure Up—exciting, funny, and poignant—offers an impeccably crafted story told with wit and depth. Carl (voice of Ed Asner), a 78-year-old widowed balloon salesman, is about to fulfill a lifelong dream. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, he flies away to the South American wilderness. But curmudgeonly Carl soon discovers that a little boy named Russell is a stowaway aboard the balloon-powered house.
