Fantastic Mr. Fox
After 12 years of bucolic bliss, Mr. Fox (George Clooney) breaks a promise to his wife (Meryl Streep) and raids the farms of their human neighbors, Boggis, Bunce and Bean. Giving in to his animal instincts endangers not only his marriage but also the lives of his family and their animal friends. When the farmers force Mr. Fox and company deep underground, he has to resort to his natural craftiness to rise above the opposition.
2009, 88 minutes, Rated PG, Directed by Wes Anderson
"Visually, the movie is a wonder, with its profusion of detail and exquisitely focussed "performances" by the figurines, whom Anderson frames in images as precisely composed as those in his live-action work."- Richard Brody, NEW YORKER
"With its lush autumnal palette and hijinks worthy of Max Fisher or Dignan, the result is a film that only Wes Anderson could have made."- Alissa Wilkinson, PASTE MAGAZINE
"'Fantastic Mr. Fox' may be the purest distillation of Anderson's specific, inimitable style."- Jason Bailey, FLAVORWIRE
