FANTASTIC MR. FOX
2009. USA. Dir: Wes Anderson. With George Clooney, Meryl Streep. Animated. 87 min.
Capping off what may have been the best year ever for so-called “children’s films,” Anderson applies his stylish wit to this stop-motion adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic about a sly, furry swindler feuding with a trio of grotesque farmers. This immaculately detailed whirlwind adventure is as visually stunning as it is fanciful and lighthearted.
DATE: Tonight, February 26th
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema
