The Lego Movie
USA, 2014, 100 min., Color

Everything is awesome!

In THE LEGO MOVIE, Emmet is an ordinary guy, going about his typical day when he discovers the Piece of Resistance. His new friend, WyldStyle, tells him a prophecy of how Emmet’s discovery makes him “the Special”. Escaping from Bad Cop, she takes Emmet to meet with the other Master Builders and shares his story: Emmet is now the key to protect the “Kragle”, a superweapon controlled by the evil Lord Business. With the help of Masterbuilders Vitruvius, Batman, Unikitty and Benny, Emmet leads the battle against Lord Business to save the universe.

THE LEGO MOVIE is a clever, fun and vibrant world, bringing you back to your childhood and the creativity that came from playing with Legos. The film was a national hit upon release last year and earned multiple awards and nominations.

The Dallas Film Society is honored to have THE LEGO MOVIE directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller here for a special screening and conversation about their film after receiving the Texas Avery Award at DFS Honors.
