An American Tail  (1986)

In this animated musical, Fievel Mousekewitz and his family of Russian-Jewish mice flee the Czarist rule of cats in the 1800s, boarding a boat to America where “there are no cats … and the streets are paved with cheese.”  This sweet, tender immigrant tale is a poignant reminder of the importance of family and inclusion, perfect for Father’s Day.

35mm, 83 min.  Director: Don Bluth.
