An american tail

Former El Pasoan Don Bluth directed this popular 1986 charmer, producer Steven Spielberg’s first foray into animation. It became the highest-grossing non-Disney animated film at that time, despite mixed reviews that uniformly praised Bluth’s traditional animation. Fleeing Ukraine in the late 19th century, the Mousekewitz family migrates to America. Young son Fievel is washed overboard and presumed dead. He survives and reaches America on his own, searching for his family while trying to protect his newfound friends. The film features the Grammy-winning, Oscar-nominated song Somewhere Out There, performed by Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram.
