Synopsis

Despereaux isn't like other mice. For a start, he has massive ears - even for a mouse. More importantly, he can read. In addition, he has almost no fear, which might not be the wisest course for such a small creature. But Despereaux's bravery could make him the only one able to save the princess and bring the sun back to a kingdom that has been sunk in misery for many years. This is a funny and stylish animated adventure that will particularly appeal to our younger members - and perhaps a few older ones too!
