I will try not to spoil the movie. It is one of those box office flops that no one liked because the message was too deep. Keep in mind...this is a
City Of Ember produced by Tom Hanks
It is the apocalypse, and an underground city was built to contain life safely for 200 years. Scientists hid directions on how to escape the hidden
city, within a box. The box was set to open 200 years after the apocalypse.
Long story short, the box gets lost and the people living in this city, forget that a world even exists above ground. The movie centers around 2 kids
who feel something isnt right, and eventually stumble across that box.
Remember when the studio lamp falls in The Truman Show?
On "assignment day" kids of the city pick their future occupation out of a bag. This could represent college and how after high school, you have to
choose from "their" list of occupations instead of usually doing what YOU want.
One of the main characters has to work in the piperoom. He wants to get into the generator room to help fix the light problems. It is behind this door
that has a blatant 33 degree mason logo on it. In the film, the people who built this City of Ember are known as "The Builders".
This is one of the anti religious scenes that come up. The city is failing all over, things are really bad, and the girl runs past a group singing.
Even though no crosses are seen, and the word God is never spoken, this is an obvious jab at christianity. The jabs get even worse but you should just
watch the movie.
Bill Murray is the corrupt major, who is hoarding food in his secret room to create a food shortage amongst the people to gain more power. He also is
planning to escape ember alone, as rumors are the city is about to go "all black".
The kids find the food room.
The movie escaltes pretty dramatically from here so i wont go on. The full summary can be found on Wikipedia if you are interested-however i really do
reccomend you watch this movie first. The overall message is telling you to "WAKE UP" and i'm all about that. Two thumbs up from me
