Synopsis

A timeless family musical and one of cinema's much loved productions, The Wizard of Oz sees young Dorothy Gale longing to escape black-and-white drudgery on a Kansas farm, for a life 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow'. During a dramatic tornado her wish comes true as she and her dog Toto are carried off into the sky and they land in Oz, where life is Technicolor bedazzlement. In a bid to return home, Dorothy gathers some new friends, Tin Man, Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion, to help her fend off the Wicked Witch, reach the Emerald City and meet the wonderful but never-before-seen Wizard of Oz. With some breathtaking moments of visual invention, The Wizard of Oz remains an entertaining film to this day and still resonates with valuable lessons of friendship, courage and perseverance.
