Ernest and Celestine: A Trip to Gibberita

MKE Film Festival

Ernest and Celestine are best friends. And even if one of them is a bear and the other is a mouse, they always step towards adventures together. They are forlorn when Ernest's cherished violin breaks. Gibberita, Ernest's hometown, is the only place to repair it and is home to the world's great musicians and luthiers. But it's a tense homecoming: Ernest's father, a judge, is upholding a citywide ban on music. Can Ernest, Celestine, and a mysterious masked hero restore joy to Gibberita? This rollicking, symphonic, and tender mouseterpiece will leave you rejoicing, "Libearty, equality, and mousic for all!" 6+
