United States 2011, 96 mins
Director: Carlos Saldanha
Starring: Jamie Foxx, Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg

From the makers of ICE AGE, RIO tells the story of a Minnesota macaw named Blu (Eisenberg), who leaves his small-town digs behind for the tropical climes of Rio de Janeiro.

But he's not just flying south for the winter. Rather, our feathered hero is relocated to Brazil by a team of scientists after the discovery of Jewel (Hathaway), the last remaining female of Blu's species.

Blu falls beak over claws, of course, but his feelings are at risk of being unrequited due to his fear of flying. As birds of a feather, however, Blu and Jewel are destined to flock together, despite poachers' attempts to spoil the party. A colourful animated comedy with a menagerie of endearing characters and heart to spare, RIO will delight audiences of all ages.
