Healing Power of the Page

After a storm evocative of “The Wizard of Oz,” Mr. Lessmore is reunited with books, which fly and walk in this animated short nominated for an Oscar. Mr. Lessmore spends his days considering his story, which intersected with books and people. “Getting into his story” is restorative for him.

The film has inspired an iPad app, which according to John Pavlus, is “like a well-written bedtime story and an immersive animated movie at once—without being ‘too much’ of either.”
