MORE ABOUT THE FILM:

Director: Andrew Stanton. USA. 2008. 99 mins. 
Wall-E tells the story of a small, rather hopeless looking robot who is left alone on Earth to clean up the mess we humans have made of the planet. Getting on with his routines day after day, we get to know him and his curious personality at the same time as he carries out his lonely task - until, that is, he meets Eve, another robot sent to Earth, who has been sent to Earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable.
