In response to Ellen Hindman's letter about the movie "WALL*E" (Readers' Forum, July 14), I think she is letting her political views get in the way of a touching story. "WALL*E" dealt with the environment and humanity's consumption and waste. Its message was one of environmental respect, personal responsibility, perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds and love.
The film does criticize humanity for their apathy and treatment of the environment, but it also celebrates humanity's inherent goodness.
That is a message I hope children will pick up on, rather than hope it is over their heads.
"WALL*E" is deeper than many seem to be willing to look, especially when it challenges their own ideology.
