WALL-E (2008) 7MATE, 6.30PM, G, ANIMATION
After the stalled Cars and the human-heavy Ratatouille, the animation wizards at Pixar return to form with a plethora of rapid-fire visual jokes and one uncannily touching relationship. The tale concerns the eponymous robot, a production-line machine whose existence is based on tidying up rubbish left by humans. But after 600 years of hard work, WALL-E has developed a personality – and he’s getting lonely. His life quickly changes with the arrival of Eve, a probe sent down to Earth to search for signs of life and their friendship is nothing short of beautiful. A stunning film for all ages. ★★★★
A cog in the machine: Pixar flick Wall-E is a touching story about a lonely robot.
