Iron Giant Story
The Iron Giant is a 1999 animated science fiction movie directed by Brad Bird. Set during the 1950s Cold War era, the story centers around the unlikely friendship of a young boy, Hogarth Hughes, with a giant robot, the “Giant”. The film begins with Hogarth’s discovery of a large iron giant that has crash-landed in his small town of Maine. The Giant has no recollection of where he came from or why he is there, but he becomes friendly with Hogarth after Hogarth saves him from being trapped in an electrical wire.
Hogarth takes the Giant to his remote hideout, where the Giant learns about the world around him, including the distinction between good and evil. As their friendship deepens, Hogarth seeks to protect the Giant from the attention of government agent, Kent Mansley (who believes the Giant to be a danger to national security).
As the story progresses, the Giant faces a conflict between his inner peace and his inner destructive nature. Through his conversations with Hogarth as well as with the town’s inhabitants, the Giant learns the importance of life, kindness, and the ability to make choices.
