Around the World in 80 Days
By Laura Eason
Adapted from the novel by Jules Verne
Directed by Tom Mitchell
Phileas Fogg—fantastically wealthy, majestically mysterious, and a dedicated man of scientific reason—has deduced that a mere 80 days is enough to circumnavigate the globe. And he’s staked his entire fortune on it. Will bandits, a herd of buffalo, an act of chivalry, and a meddlesome inspector from Scotland Yard prevent him from fulfilling this mindboggling task? Follow Fogg and his loyal valet Passepartout from the misty alleys of Victorian London to the steamy subcontinent; aboard steamships, locomotives, and elephants—as he learns about the heart, himself, and a world bigger than he ever anticipated.
“Light, cheerful and greatly entertaining…laudably committed to its theatricality… It's all a great deal of fun.” -Chicago Tribune
