Based on Roald Dahl’s children’s novel, “Fantastic Mr. Fox” is a 2009 stop-motion film directed by Wes Anderson.
The film is highly visual and features a great level of detail. Compared to modern animation, stop-motion adds an artistic element. There is a nuanced quality, where things are not quite perfect, but that’s what separates it from other animated films.
Mature themes are incorporated into the story arc and this makes the film enjoyable for adults and kids alike.
The film was nominated for numerous awards, including two Oscars and a Golden Globe.
