The precocious Fievel Mousekewitz—yes, you read that right—is separated from his family while emigrating from Russia to the U.S., chasing the elusive dream of a cat-free life. With strikingly detailed hand-drawn animation by animation master Bluth, this unusually dark children’s film contains many indelible setpieces, including the Golem-like mechanical Giant Mouse of Minsk.
