Today in Movie History: May 30

For the second day in a row, we have a Pixar masterpiece to celebrate. Finding Nemo is typical of the studio’s best efforts, which is to say it’s funny and moving and visually gorgeous and you can’t quite imagine how the cinematic canon got along without it. Albert Brooks provides the voice of Marlin,  an anxiety-prone clownfish whose son Nemo is abducted from their reef home by an Australian dentist. An epic quest to rescue him ensues, marked by the arrival by the chronically amnesiac Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) and the subsequent creation of one of the most beloved duos in movie history. Finding Nemo opened 15 years ago today in 2003, and like most Pixar efforts of the era, it’s aged like fine wine.
