Ciné-Club: Fantastic Mr Fox (A Month of Wes Anderson)

1_mr_fox.jpg

Second installment in our Month of Wes Anderson: a stop-motion adaptation of a Roald Dahl's tale, Fantastic Mr Fox. In typical Anderson fashion, the flamboyant but flaw-ridden Mr Fox learns a hard lesson and finds some kind of redemption... with plenty of absurd obstacles, weird characters and thrills along the way. 

Fantastic Mr Fox (Wes Anderson, 2009) 

Mr. and Mrs. Fox live an idyllic home life with their son Ash and visiting young nephew Kristopherson. But after 12 years, the bucolic existence proves too much for Mr Fox's wild animal instincts.

"An adventure in pure imagination that plays to the smart kid in all of us." Rolling Stone
