Ernest and Célestine

76 min.FeatureChildren's films, Animation

A bear named Ernest befriends a mouse named Celestine in this gentle adaptation of the beloved children's book by author Gabrielle Vincent. Celestine is an orphaned mouse who lives underground. An artist at heart, Celestine is training to become a dentist when she meets cantankerous bear Ernest. Ernest has emerged from his remote woodland cottage in search of food and Celestine nearly becomes his breakfast. Instead of being frightened by Ernest like most mice, however, Celestine strikes up a friendship with the misunderstood giant. Before long Ernest and Celestine are inseparable, but can their friendship last in a world where mice have been taught to fear bears, and bears have been taught never to play with their food?
