Young Hogarth Hughes discovers a sixty-foot robot in the woods behind his house. This animated adaptation of Ted Hughes' creature-from-outer-space tale is a knowing amalgam of Superman, Frankenstein's monster and ET, and represents an all-too-rare rare triumph of style, innocence and intellect that will appeal to both cine-literate adult and thrill-seeking child alike.
