Synopses & Reviews
Edwin Abbott's beloved mathematical adventure novel Flatland (1884) is being introduced to a whole new generation of readers and viewers through Flatland: The Movie, a dramatic computer-animated adaptation starring Martin Sheen, Kristen Bell, Michael York, Tony Hale, and Joe Estevez. This book is the companion to the movie, and the ultimate edition of the classic book on which it is based. A beautiful, large-format volume, Flatland: The Movie Edition includes:
"Flatland has and always will be a fun and fascinating journey, showing us again how the world of mathematics can expand the mind and take the imagination to places where it didn't know it could play." Danica McKellar, author of Math Doesn't Suck
"A fascinating look behind the scenes of the best Flatland movie yet. Long live A Square!" Rudy Rucker, author of The Fourth Dimension
"The book is nicely presented, and includes the full text of the original novel, the screenplay for the... film, commentaries from the filmmakers and stunning colour art taken from the film. [The film]...nicely brings Flatland to life.... a fun ride..." New Scientist
Flatland: The Movie is an exciting half-hour animated film based on Edwin Abbott's classic novel. Flatland is an entirely two-dimensional world where different shapes live, work, and play, all under the rule of the evil Circles who are determined to keep the third dimension a secret, at any cost. The story follows Arthur Square (Martin Sheen) and his curious granddaughter Hex (Kristen Bell). When the mysterious visitor Spherius (Michael York) arrives from Spaceland, Arthur and Hex face grave danger as they begin to come to terms with the truth of the third dimension. Combining action, drama, geometry, and sociopolitical commentary, this moving story challenges audiences to grasp the limitations of their assumptions about reality and to think about the possibility of higher and previously inconceivable dimensions (both literal and metaphorical).
