Finding Nemo is a Academy Award winning computer-animated film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released to theatres by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Distribution in the United States on May 30, 2003, in Australia on the 28th of August, 2003. This is the first Disney-Pixar film not to premiere in the United States in November, making it the first to be released in the UK in the same year, rather than the next.
The film tells the story of a widowed clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) who lives in Sydney Harbour in Sydney. Marlin, after losing his wife, Coral, and children, in a barracuda attack sometime back, tries his best as a parent to his only remaining son Nemo, but has a tendency to over-parent and stifle his son. Because Nemo has a fin smaller than the other (his "lucky fin"), and because he promised to not let anything happen to him, Marlin is constantly warning his son that the ocean isn't safe (although he is clearly subjecting his son to his own neurotic agoraphobic tendencies).
Embarrassed once too often by his father's over-protectiveness, Nemo ventures out into open water towards a 'butt' (a fishing boat, mispronounced by one of Nemo's little friends) to prove to his father wrong. Unfortunately, Marlin was for once correct, as Nemo is immediately scooped up by a kindly dentist who takes pity on him because of his fin. Thus it is up to Marlin and his newfound "guide", Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a Regal Blue Tang fish who suffers from short-term memory loss to bring Nemo back, and they must cross the ocean - tangling with the various dangers waiting for them - in order to rescue Nemo from the dentist's office in Sydney, Australia. Nemo, meanwhile, gets involved in a plot with the other fish in the aquarium to escape from the dentist's office and return to the ocean.
