I watched this animated movie on VHS no fewer than a billion times in the 1980s, and three decades later, I'm here to tell you: It's intense, y'all. Check out, with nostalgia or for the first time, this very adult, sometimes scary and extremely inspiring story of a fierce mama mouse whose love for her children moves mountains -- or, at least her endangered home.

Suspenseful and heartwarming, this beautifully animated odyssey is the story of Mrs. Brisby, a mild-mannered mother mouse with a plan to move Heaven and Earth (or at least her house and home) to save her family from Farmer Fitzgibbon's plow. Along the way she gets help from a lovelorn Crow, a busybody neighbor mouse and a fearsome Great Owl. Unfortunately, Mrs. Brisby will need an engineering miracle to hoist her home, and for that she must face a mysterious rat, fend off a ferocious cat and claim a magic amulet. But when Mrs. Brisby discovers the astounding secret of NIMH...it could change her life forever. This timeless tale of love, courage and determination transports viewers into an enchanting world where the bravest hearts live in the meekest of mice. Based on Robert C. O'Brien’s Newberry Award-winning children's book, the film features the voices of Elizabeth Hartman, Derek Jacobi, Dom DeLuise, Shannen Doherty and John Carradine. Written and directed by Don Bluth (The Land Before Time, All Dogs Go to Heaven).
