Producer Steven Spielberg's first dabble in animation follows the 19th century adventures of a young Russian mouse who is washed overboard when his family moves to America. Smashing attention to detail and a menagerie of oddball characters ensure the skittery immigrant finds plenty of local colour in his adopted country. But yikes, despite all the rumours, the place is actually swarming with cats!
