Summer Movie: Avatar

JCU Library has a great collection of films! You can find them in 791.4372.

This 2009 film is generally considered to be the highest-grossing film of all time and recieved a mountain of awards including 9 Academy Awards nominations (of which it won 3). If you haven't seen the film yet it's well past time.

What it's about:

On the lush alien world of Pandora live the Na'vi, beings who appear primitive but are highly evolved. Because the planet's environment is poisonous, human/Na'vi hybrids, called Avatars, must link to human minds to allow for free movement on Pandora. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a paralyzed former Marine, becomes mobile again through one such Avatar and falls in love with a Na'vi woman (Zoe Saldana). As a bond with her grows, he is drawn into a battle for the survival of her world.
