The siblings Noah and Emma travel with their mother Jo from Seattle to the family cottage in Whidbey Island to spend a couple of days while their workaholic father David Wilder is working. They find a box of toys from the future in the water and bring it home, and Emma finds a stuffed rabbit called Mimzy, and stones and a weird object, but they hide their findings from their parents. Mimzy talks telepathically to Emma and the siblings develop special abilities, increasing their intelligences to the level of genius. Their father becomes very proud when Noah presents a magnificent design in the fair of science and technology, and his teacher Larry White and his mystic wife Naomi Schwartz become interested in the boy when he draws a mandala. When Noah accidentally assembles the objects and activates a powerful generator creating a blackout in the state, the FBI arrests the family trying to disclose the mystery. But Emma unravels the importance to send Mimzy back to the future.

Film Review

This is quite an entertaining film, and I liked the way it incorporated Lewis Carroll's evergreen Alice in Wonderland tale into its story of extra-terrestrial visitors, but it falters very badly in the last reel and ends up looking like just another inferior copy of ET.Chris O'Neil and Rhiannon Leigh Wryn play siblings who stumble across a mysterious box on the beach which happens to contain a cuddly rabbit transported from a dying planet in a desperate quest for the elixir it needs to revive its people. Previous mimzys, we learn, made it to earth before – most obviously in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century when it landed in the lap of the girl who inspired Lewis Carroll to write Alice in Wonderland (rabbit, geddit?) but failed to complete their mission. Now this merging of fiction with factual history is always something that appeals to me – I like the idea of grand stories unfolding around historical fact unseen by all those who record history, and for a while this…

…but remains somewhat charming despite its flaws. "The Last Mimzy" (very loosely adapted from a classic tale by "Lewis Padgett," one of the many pseudonyms of the brilliant husband/wife writing team of Henry Kuttner & Catherine L. Moore) is an all-ages sci-fantasy very much in the "E.T." oeuvre, but falls distinctly short of Spielberg's classic as well as the original short story. In a time-traveling nutshell, two youngsters find a box of toys sent from the future to retrieve something vitally needed for the survival/renewal of humanity in that future. The "toys" prove to be highly sophisticated machines designed to teach their discoverers what to do with them. The kids, played with great likability by newcomers Chris O'Neil and a precocious Rhiannon Leigh "Hulk" Wryn, gain the attention of parents, teachers, and Homeland Security alike as their interaction with the machines gets more…interesting.I'd had high hopes …

It isn't coincidence that this is actually an intellectually interesting children's movie, taken from a famous science fiction story 'Mimsy were the Borogoves' written by Lewis Padgett (Henry Kuttner and C.L. Moore). It is one of my favorite short stories, although the story ends differently, and they had to embellish the story for the movie. Still, the deviations are acceptable and in the spirit of the story, and I understand why the ending needed to be as it is for the movie.My six-year-old granddaughter was enrapt as she watched the movie tonight, and I am going to buy her the Mimsy doll for Christmas along with a copy of the movie.This movie is seriously satisfying to watch in many ways. It treats children as being intellectually worthy and really plays on their intuitive superiority. It addressed the dullness that takes place over time and the way our brain processes crystallize as we age. Richard Posner discusses this in more than one of his books on law and …
