Directed by
Gil Kenan

Saoirse Ronan and Harry Treadaway star as two adolescents who try to rescue their underground city from an impending power failure that will plunge it into permanent darkness in Gil Kenan's fantasy adventure, which is adapted from Jeanne DuPrau's children's book. The City of Ember was built 200 years earlier as a subterranean refuge for humanity from an unspecified threat. But now the generator that lights the city is breaking down, and the place is starting to fall apart. Youngsters Lina and Doon are unconvinced by the assurances of the smug, incompetent mayor. When Lina finds some long-lost information from the city's builders, she and Doon decide to stave off the beckoning darkness.
