About this deal

The narrative has two timelines, that of Maud and her family from the 1870s onwards, and the 78 year old Maud's presence on the Hollywood film set of The Wizard of Oz i

Scott of The New York Times said that while the film lacks "dazzling originality", it still has "warmth, charm and good humor".Writing for the Los Angeles Times, Kenneth Turan said that, "As the 13-year gap between Nemo and Dory indicates, this was not a concept that cried out to be made. A woman with a heart, a brain, courage to spare and a girl's sense of wonder-this is the heroine of Elizabeth Letts's sparkling, touching Finding Dorothy .

Prior to reading this book I hadn’t really known anything about the author who wrote The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, so I really enjoyed this fascinating account of his life, in which we see the power of imagination and storytelling, and where the inspiration for something wonderful was found. Maud had long since noted that there were two kinds of people in the world: fans of Oz—­those who remembered their childhoods—­and those who pretended that they had never even heard of Oz, who believed that adults should put away childish things. In February 2013, it was confirmed by the press that Albert Brooks would reprise the role of Marlin in the sequel.I really enjoyed these little references, and moments where aspects of the story of Oz appeared, as we get a glimpse of the story beginning to form in Baum’s mind, from the origin of the tin man, to a recognisable choice of fabric for a dress. He hated to die, did not want to leave me, said he was never happy without me, but it was better he should go first, if it had to be, for I doubt if he could have got along without me. Sigourney Weaver as herself, who voices the recorded messages broadcast over the institute's public address system. Finding Dory premiered at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles on June 8, 2016, and was released in theaters in the United States on June 17.
