For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights. But Ember's once powerful generator is failing ... and the great lamps that illuminate the city are starting to flicker.
When Doon gets his first glimpse of the generator, the camera views it from our perspective instead. Director Gil Kenan did it this way because Doon acts as our eyes and it conveys to us the importance of the generator to his city and our story.
I got lost, I'm sorry!
Looper: Get lost again!
When riding the boat through the flume, they come upon an obvious drop. Water is pouring over the edge. But, when they land in the lake after the drop, there is no water pouring, over them or behind them.
