City of Ember - Movie Synopsis & Plot

For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights. But Ember's once powerful generator is failing... and the great lamps that illuminate the city are starting to flicker. Now, two teenagers in a race against time, must search Ember for clues that will unlock the ancient mystery of the city's existence, and help the citizens escape before the lights go out forever.

MOVIE REVIEW

City of Ember opened to a pathetic amount when it was released in the fall of 2008, to the point where few people have even heard of it. The movie, about a society that has lived underground for 200 years but is now facing destruction as their generator begins to fail, is a surprisingly entertaining and imaginative picture that will entertain children and adults alike.
