The Films

Babe

Chris Noonan | US, Australia | 92

With James Cromwell, Magda Szubanski. Adapted from Dick King-Smith's classic 1983 children’s novel The Sheep-Pig, Babe (voiced by Christine Cavanaugh) is the inspirational story of a shy Yorkshire piglet searching for his place in the world. When Farmer Hoggett (Cromwell) wins him at the county fair, Babe arrives at his farm with a bit of identity crisis, finding his calling as a sheep-dog. With the help of a delightful assortment of barnyard friends, the heroic pig is headed for the challenge of his life. A surprise Best Picture nominee for the 1995 Oscars—and a winner for Best Visual Effects—this endearing and fun-filled tale is enjoyable for the whole family. Rated: G

Babe: Pig in the City

George Miller | US, Australia | 96

With James Cromwell, Magda Szubanski, Mickey Rooney. Director George Miller, perhaps best known for his Mad Max franchise, cleverly directs this ambitious, charming sequel to the international sensation Babe, which he had produced and co-wrote. In an effort to save the farm, Babe (this time voiced by E.G. Daily) finds himself waylaid in the fictional city of Metropolis after Farmer Hoggett (Cromwell) is injured and unable to work. Filled with life lessons, this adventure through an alternately fun and frightening cityscape introduces us to an assortment of new animal friends looking for a home. Miller’s follow-up is a visually stunning extravaganza with visionary set design and effects. Rated: PG
