Film Review - 'Fantastic Mr. Fox'

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.

The Movie Club will be screening “Fantastic Mr Fox” on Wednesday 10 January 6pm sharp at Narellan Library. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided, BYO snacks are more than welcome. Stay after the screening for a short discussion about the film. See the discussion questions to get some ideas.
