Fantastic Mr. Fox
In this hilarious and heartwarming animated adventure from visionary director Wes Anderson, the urbane Mr. Fox cannot resist returning to his sneaky, farm-raiding old ways and plots the greatest chicken heist the animal world has ever seen. Then, he must help his community survive the farmers’ retaliation. Featuring vibrant performances by George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe and Bill Murray, the delightful adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel was nominated for an Academy Award for best animated feature. This meticulous work of stop-motion animation is unforgettable.
